actually, i'm not sure if that really is Metrotown. :p

it seems a bit low, considering there's an overpass to get you to the mall.

Is that a guess or an answer? =D =P I can't tell...

And that was originally my guess but then there won't be a new roof (although I would hope for one) and it's missing the other proposed entrance.

Either way, whatever that is, it looks nice and simple.

I'm pretty sure that's Broadway Station, looking North-East from Commercial Drive. The staircases match what is currently there, and I have seen the rounded sides for BWY STN shown before on some previous renderings.

What I'm confused about is how these station upgrades tie in with the capacity doubling. Presumably, they'll need to lengthen platforms, so you would think they'd wait for that before they start renovating. This rendering does not appear to show any platform lengthening.

That is correct as it stands now the platform lenghtening and the makeovers are two seperate projects, as the lengthening isn't set for quite a few years but the make overs are starting right away at Metrotown/Main/Broadway. I agree that it seems like a waste and those three stations should be extended while they are worked on anyways to save some money.

Thats exactly my point. They aren't extending it in this plan (same goes for Main; Metrotown might be extended) but to double the capacity (as per $14B plan) they'll have to extend it, along with the rest of the stations.

I heard once from a CityGate resident that they were still waiting for 'their' park and it was said as if they were suffering from a complete lack of parks. In fact they have a giant full-block park between them and the train station with street lights at both ends, they have the Science World park in front of them, which is larger than most neighbourhood parks throughout the city, and they have Andy Livingstone Park a block away with its sports fields and nicely landscaped stream area. But of course they are still waiting for the one at the Northeast corner of False Creek and until it is complete they won't be content.

It's an elevated centre platform - no mezzanine station.
Rules out downtown stations, Main St., Nanaimo, 29th Ave., Metrotown, Edmonds, 22nd Ave (outside platforms?), New West (due to Plaza 88), and Columbia.

My guess is also the old part of Broadway Station, but the road isn't that close to it.

Yeah, could be Joyce looking from SE to NW. There's a condo tower in the right location @ Joyce.

I don't think it's Joyce station because Joyce's platform goes over Joyce Street. This one doesn't, or at least it doesn't seem like it.

I think it might be the re-redesigned Main Street station. I have heard that there will be a total removal of the mezzanine level and the circular pavilion with the new core on the east side of the station might have been redesigned as part of the platform extension to accommodate the longer trains.

That could be the case because the building matches the apartment building right beside the station.

Having said that, it seems like this is a HUGE extension, more than 18m for sure. The roof design also matches the current Main Street Science world...

I'm going to send an email to TransLink -_-"
