Gilmore Station

Gilmore Station is a station on the Millennium Line of the SkyTrain system in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada. The station is located at Gilmore Avenue and Dawson Street. The station is adjacent to several new high rise condominium complexes which are a component of the Brentwood Town Centre Development Plan, responsible for overseeing the area transformed from light industrial/lower occupancy commercial, into an urbanized centre. It is also next to the Vancouver Film Studios.

The station, completed in 2002, is elevated with two platforms each on either side of the SkyTrain tracks. The station was designed by Busby and Associates who also designed the impressive Brentwood Town Centre Station. Dominion Construction built the Gilmore Station as part of a $14.3-million contract that also included Brentwood Town Centre Station and the Gilmore power substation.

As the station is expected to be incorporated into a new commercial complex, the wood and metal frames were designed to be easily disassembled and then reconfigured, maintaining the artistic intention of the station and accommodating any future alterations to the SkyTrain line or development around it.

Locations of a number of popular stores and restaurants are near the station, such as Home Depot, Staples, White Spot, Earls, Swiss Chalet, Boston Pizza, Tim Hortons, Extreme Pita, Quiznos, Taco del Mar as well as two hotels - Accent Inn and Executive Inn.

Famous quotes containing the words station and/or gilmore:

    I introduced her to Elena, and in that life-quickening atmosphere of a big railway station where everything is something trembling on the brink of something else, thus to be clutched and cherished, the exchange of a few words was enough to enable two totally dissimilar women to start calling each other by their pet names the very next time they met.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    He leadeth me O blessed thought,
    O words with heavenly comfort fraught,
    Whate’er I do, where’er I be,
    Still ‘tis God’s hand that leadeth me.
    —Joseph Henry Gilmore (1834–1918)
