Angle Lake Station
Angle Lake Station is an elevated center platform light rail rapid transit station at the interim terminus of Sound Transit’s SeaTac to South 200th extension. This extension is comprised of 1.6 miles of elevated guideway with a single station, representing the latest expansion phase for the Link Light Rail system.
VIA was the architectural lead of a design-build team comprised of partners PCL as lead contractor and HDR as lead engineering consultant. During the competitive design-build process, VIA’s role was to analyze the prescriptive elements of the station design, finding efficiencies, streamlining circulation, and providing a design concept that represented the best value in the bid process. For the subsequent phase, VIA incorporated an ambitious sustainability program including a rooftop photovoltaic array that generates 2.5% of the station’s annual power needs and rainwater harvesting to serve 100% of the station’s landscape irrigation needs. Completed in September 2016, the project is now certified LEED Gold.
