The Queensway Transit Exchange, a transit island housing eight bus stops, acts as a gateway to Kelowna’s downtown. While providing transit connectivity to the best of the City’s entertainment, cultural, and employment districts, the Exchange acts as a placemaker and visual enhancement to the City’s core.

 

Features:

  • Semi-enclosed with curved roof, lattice screen, and wind-deflectors for weather protection
  • Glue-lam timber beam and decking panels comprise nine meter wide by 57 meter long roof span
  • Enhanced visibility + safety via minimal steel tree columns
  • Seating pods encourage feeling of congregation for waiting transit patrons
This project has been awarded the Canadian Wood Council Wood-WORKS!
