Braid Skytrain Station
corner of Braid St. & Brunette Ave.
Two new stations in New Westminster, Braid and Sapperton, opened on January 5, 2002. The opening of these stations marked the first stage of a major skytrain expansion known as the Millenium Line. Architectura and Walter Francl Architect designed the Braid Skytrain Station following Baker McGarva Hart's standard functional template for skytrain development. The construction was done by Westpro Constructors Group Ltd. The architects wanted the industrial and architectural heritage of this area of New Westminster to be incorporated into their design. This was accomplished through the use of heritage-style materials like heavy timber, metal siding, a metal roof and glass. The
Braid Street Station won an Architectural Institute of B.C. (AIBC) Merit Award in 2002.
