    Have you seen the Maintenance facility at Black Creek Drive? It's well into construction; I believe it's opening next year (and I don't have any idea why).

    Metrolix probably needs it to store all of the LRVs they have on order. What I ment was for stations we have yet to see anything other then a hole in the ground for any of them.

    I was going to say. I'm planning on just buying a day pass on Sunday and doing the full tour.

    1) Every other station had an open house, and this was the only day that fit in the schedule.
    2) This is geared more towards transit nerds, while the opening day festivities are probably more of a family event for the local community (I expect to see stuff like face painting, refreshments, and performances by local community groups).

    I'm loving those big hits of glossy yellow and red contrasting with the concrete.

    Where it's urban. And dense.
    I love the red--but the mustard yellow isn't working, in my view. Sure, the gloss is nice, and taken in the context of a new, clean station, it passes. But there are so many other colours schemes...

    The sins in this station are myriad!

    As I discussed w/several at the UT meet-up today..........

    On the surface level, west side of Keele the ceiling is all a uniform finish, and 95% pot-hole style lighting.

    With a single fluorescent fixture, for no obvious logical reason, looking completely incongruous, roughly in the middle.

    While the mezzanine level features a nice ceiling finish and pothole lights over the platform and escalators.......that transition for no obvious reason to fluorescent lighting at the top of the escalators, lighting which isn't particularly attractive, but also doesn't even run consistently in the same direction (again w/o obvious reason).

    In other locations there is no drop ceiling.

    In portions of those....the light fixtures are not all suspended at the same height, the differences obvious to the naked eye.

    Either that is an egregious design flaw or someone doesn't know what a measuring stick is..........

    Other than that..............fine station!

    LOL

    Psssst......... For 200M I could have done better.

    Why do all these brand new stations look like they've been in operation for a decade? Everything is stained and dirty and some tiles and other items look poorly repaired or installed after the fact, like they were patched up after several years. Terrible workmanship on this project. This is what we get for $3 Billion these days?

    Of all the new stations, I feel that this one is the least well executed compared to the others. The same architects also worked on Pioneer Village and (for the most part) it turned out much better.
