South 200th Street Station
Square Footage: 2,000
Commissioned by Sound Transit, we designed the new extension of light rail service from its current southern terminus at Sea-Tac Airport to South 200th Street in the City of Sea-Tac.
This project increases high-capacity transit access to Sea-Tac International Airport, a leading regional economic engine responsible for nearly 90,000 direct jobs and 13,000 indirect jobs. For many workers and travelers, the extension of light rail service will provide a reliable transit alternative to driving on the congested I-5 freeway and SR-99 and SR-518 highways.
Located south of Sea-Tac International Airport, the South 200th Street Station site is impacted by a power sub-station, above-grade power lines, and steep site topography. The design includes an elevated platform positioned between the tracks; glass partitions that provide protection from the elements while preserving the view; and an undulating canopy—designed for a pre-fabrication process—that mimics the South Link line’s “Environment in Motion” graphic. The parking structure below provides structural flexibility to include retail space, and a park-and-ride.
