MacEwan Station is a future LRT station on the Metro Line in Edmonton, Alberta. It is located across from MacEwan University on 105 Avenue between 103 and 104 Street. The station is expected to be in service in early 2015.[2]

History[edit]

Construction on the first phase of the project that will link the station with Churchill Station began in the fall of 2009 with completion set for early 2015.[2]

It was announced on August 31, 2009, that the Katz Group had bought the land adjacent to the site for the MacEwan Station, with the intention to build a new NHL arena.[3]
