Brentwood Town Centre is a SkyTrain station in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Station Details

Usually referenced simply as Brentwood, Brentwood Town Centre is located at Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby's Brentwood Town Centre. The station is located adjacent to Brentwood Town Centre mall to the north and SOLO District to the west, in addition to other high density residential developements along Lougheed Highway currently under construction. The station derives its name from both the mall and the 1960s suburban neighborhood development north of the mall.

Brentwood Town Centre is the only station in the system to be located and elevated above the middle of a street (the station structure is built on the median of Lougheed Highway). This is also one of two stations where the concourse is not located on street level for an elevated station (the other is Gilmore). Because of this design, the station can be used as a pedestrian overpass over Lougheed Highway without entering the Fare Paid Zone. Currently, there are plans to add an elevator, employee washroom, and roofing at the Lougheed Highway south entrance.

The station is constructed with a mixture of steel, glass, and wood. Busby + Associates (now Perkins+Will Canada) designed the station and their work on Brentwood Town Centre Station was honoured in 2002 with the Governor General's Medal in Architecture. The station integrates steel and laminated timber into its structure with specially designed joints to connect the various pieces. The steel and wood "ribs" that make up the station structure were prefabricated by George Third & Son of Vancouver and were lifted piece of piece onto the guideway for installation.[1][2]

History

The bus loop opened on September 28, 1989 as Brentwood Mall and was a meeting point for Burnaby and Tri-Cities suburban express services to/from Downtown Vancouver and local services. The exchange opened as part of the expansion of Brentwood Mall. Prior to 1989, there was no proper exchange and services had to load/unload on the street-side. Following the completion of the Millennium Line, many services were either cancelled or moved their western terminus to Lougheed Station. The bus loop was renamed to Brentwood Station to reflect the opening of the adjacent SkyTrain station, but the signage at Brentwood Station continued to display "Brentwood Mall" until its closure and demolition in December 2013 to make way for The Amazing Brentwood development. Services now load and unload along Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue.

A walkway connected the bus loop with the SkyTrain station but closed on August 18, 2014 for demolition to make way for construction.[3] A reconstructed pedestrian bridge connecting the main station structure and the mall reopened on November 7, 2019.

Bus Routes

Presently, buses load/unload on Willingdon Avenue and on Lougheed Highway. Bays 1, 6, and 7 are on Willingdon Avenue and all other bays are on Lougheed Highway.
