Two firsts were achieved with Westbrook LRT Station: the first underground station in Calgary and the first built example of Transit Oriented Development (TOD). The south station head is built into what will become an urban park when the surrounding land is redeveloped and act as beacons the underground station. Skylights over the platforms are sensitively integrated into the design of the park, serving to bring daylight and views to the underground platforms. Safety concerns with the underground station were addressed through Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design by providing clear sightlines from the entries at grade down to the platforms below.
