PROJECT: Station Platform Walls
ARTIST: Louie Gong (Seattle, WA)
DESCRIPTION: Gong is creating an environment for the station platform, with tile patterns for its walls overlaid by two long sinuous, cut-metal creatures. Inspired by the Northwest native and Chinese artwork of his ancestry, Gong's creatures suggest dragons. Up close, patrons will see that the dragons' bodies are filled with shapes and images drawn from plants and animals, native history, and the contemporary urban landscape.
Located between 120th Ave NE and 124th Ave NE, the station’s open-air platforms are below street level.
It will be a 13-minute ride to downtown Redmond when that extension opens in 2024.
The dramatic station awning reflects the excitement of the growing Spring District.
The tracks are getting ready for service to start in 2023.
Light rail service has attracted companies such as Facebook to locate here.
