Stadium LRT Station Redevelopment

Revitalizing an Edmonton icon.

The Stadium LRT Redevelopment involves the refurbishment of the original 1978 Stadium Station on the northeast leg of Edmonton’s Capital Line LRT. GEC is taking a traditionally-designed transit station and transforming it into a modern inter-modal transit hub by replacing the grade-separated access and centre-loaded platform. The new at-grade crossings and side-loaded platforms more directly engage the adjacent bus loop and residential neighbourhoods, transforming the train corridor into an occupied centre for the community instead of an under-utilized edge.

At its core, the Stadium LRT Redevelopment is intended to help grow the surrounding community through the refurbishment of an underdeveloped, under-used site. In addition, the project takes an element that divides the community (the rail line) and turns it into a device that brings the community together by introducing safe and convenient at-grade access. The project introduced signalized at-grade track crossings to create an integrated urban realm, linking culture (the Stadium), residential, and commercial with an intermodal hub for trains, buses, cars, bikes, and pedestrians.
