Overview

The City of Calgary’s new Green Line will extend from the North Pointe Station on an alignment that runs along Centre Street, through the downtown, and south to the Seton Station. There will be a future extension to the community of Keystone.

The consultant team is led by Hatch Mott MacDonald (HMM), with Sturgess Architecture responsible for Station Design and Urban Design. Twenty-eight proposed stations must accommodate a wide variety of conditions from older inner city communities to newly planned suburbs. Several of the stations will be integrated with proposed Transit Oriented Developments (TOD) at selected places along the route. The station design considers integration with the surrounding context, anticipating future developments, the placement of transit plazas, park and ride lots, and pedestrian and cycling connectivity. The predesign component of the southeast section is completed and the same process is beginning on the Centre City and north sections of the alignment. For more information, click here.
