Rouge Hill GO Station

Toronto, Ontario

Situated between Rouge Valley Park and Highland Creek Watershed conservation areas, with a commanding view of Lake Ontario and the waterfront trail, Rouge Hill GO Station’s unique location creates an opportunity for iconic architecture with a firm sense of place. The design is a simple, functional, transparent, day-lit building that is a direct response to the aesthetic qualities of the site. It incorporates the functional program of a public concourse, night waiting area, retail, ticket sales, as well as the ancillary public and back of house areas.

In addition to the station building, the project scope included re-figuration of the entire site, design of the new service building, platform extensions, new pedestrian tunnel, stair and elevator enclosures as well as the upgrades of the existing pedestrian tunnel to new GO Transit standards.

The project was designed to LEED Gold standards. A holistic strategy, including the use natural building materials, improving and encouraging community access, using sustainable landscaping methods, and the optimization of building performance will be employed.
