From paradigm's flickr pics:



Proposed Wayfinding Pylon. Features a new "T" symbol which, apparently, TransLink is going to use as a beacon for all it's major transit services. Similar to the other "T" or "M" symbols found on other major metro systems around the world.





New Broadway SkyTrain Station improvements (view looking at 2nd Avenue entrance)





Broadway/Commercial SkyTrain Station improvements. From what I can tell in the rendering, it includes:
- a large glass roof to act as a large bus shelter for the 99 B-Line on both the arrival and departing sides of the street
- a new pedestrian crossing directly from the Broadway Station entrance across the street to the Commercial Station hub entrance
- orange/white stripe paint highlighting the pedestrian crossing area on the road
- a widened pedestrian bridge
- new sheltering structure under the pedestrian bridge
- replacement of the Broadway Station metal mesh screens with glass walls
