The city of Edmonton is looking at a $39-million plan to redevelop the area around the Stadium LRT Station into a vibrant neighbourhood.
The concept, as described in a city report, envisions the transformation of the Stadium LRT Station area into a vibrant mixed-use, "enhanced station neighbourhood."

The defining feature of the concept is a new pedestrian and cyclist-friendly street across the LRT tracks, linking the river valley and Jasper Avenue to Stadium Road.
