Brentwood Town Centre (sometimes abbreviated as Brentwood) is an elevated station on the Millennium Line of Metro Vancouver's SkyTrain rapid transit system. The station is located above Lougheed Highway east of Willingdon Avenue in Burnaby, British Columbia. The station is adjacent to the Brentwood Town Centre mall, a mid-size shopping centre.
Structure and design
Brentwood Town Centre station is the only station in the system that is built on a median, with the entire station footprint located directly above a roadway. The station is also designed to serve as a pedestrian overpass across Lougheed Highway, which requires the station platforms to be high above the roadway and a mezzanine/concourse to be built below the platform level. Only two other Millennium Line station have this feature (Lougheed Town Centre station and Gilmore station).
The station is built using a combination of wood and steel, customly designed to provide a curved appearance. The extensive use of glass for the outer wall make the station glow at night.
