Angle Lake Station: Environment in Motion – Project Tour
Tour of Angle Lake Light Rail Transit station with VIA Architecture. Angle Lake Station is the first station in the South 200th Link Extension for Sound Transit’s light rail system south of the SeaTac Airport Station. With a theme of “Environment in Motion”, the station is an embodiment of environmental and sustainability features. We will discuss sustainability, building systems, safety and security, delivery methods and how the station has affected development in the vicinity.
Angle Lake Station is planned to be the first light rail station to be LEED certified in WA state. The station features many sustainable features such as on-site energy generation and rainwater capture for landscape irrigation. With “nowhere to hide” building systems and exposed structure, transit stations can be a challenge. There are unique attributes for program, personal safety and system security.
Angle Lake Station and the S 200th Link Extension were delivered using a design-build model. And, is already acting as a catalyst for transit oriented development in the station vicinity.
Space is limited, register by Wednesday, April 19.
The ride to Angle Lake Station is about 45 minutes with tour and Q&A to follow. A one-way ticket from International District station to Angle Lake station is $3.00 ($6.00 total for the trip). A day pass is also available for purchase for $6.00.
- Sustainability – Discuss challenges associated with sustainability rating systems and transit Architecture. Angle Lake Station is planned to be the first light rail station to be LEED certified in WA state. The station features many sustainable features such as on-site energy generation and rainwater capture for landscape irrigation.
- Building Systems – Discuss strategies employed and level of communication required by the team to achieve Sound Transit’s goals of no exposed services. Transit design and exposed structure gives the architect “nowhere to hide” building systems.
- Safety and Security – Discuss the unique attributes and components of the station program and how arrangement for proper flow is essential for personal safety and system security.
- Delivery Methods – Discuss how a design-build delivery contributes to Sound Transit’s risk reduction and design quality goals.
- Associated Development – Discuss how Angle Lake Station is already acting as a catalyst for transit oriented development in the station vicinity.
