Around the Mountain

As the last stop on Calgary’s NW LRT line, the station rests in full view of the Rocky Mountains.

Calgary, Alberta

Rocky Mountain highway

Tuscany Station is a deliberate reflection of its surroundings. Located on the historic highway to Banff, the community requested a station design that fits within this context. The angular roof forms intentionally mimic the expansive views and profile of the Rockies seen from the station. Stone quarried nearby in the foothills clads the walls and wood ceilings and accents add warmth to the design.

LEED shadow project

As a LEED shadow project, the station incorporates high performance glazing, radiant in-slab heating run by high efficiency boilers, natural ventilation, regional materials, drought resistant landscaping and low flow fixtures.

Helping circumnavigate the city

Placed in the central median of Crowchild Trail, Tuscany Station connects two previously disconnected residential communities; Tuscany and Rocky Ridge. The pedestrian bridges to the station are formally part of Calgary’s Regional Pathway system. This places Tuscany Station directly on the premier pedestrian and bicycle pathway that circumnavigates the city.
