Templeton Station, taken from the north end. Click for a larger version!
Well, the Templeton Station open house was yesterday, and lots of us have returned with photos!
Templeton is quite a gorgeous station—it’s all glass and wood and feels really light and airy. There are wonderful views of the surrounding area from the top level. Also, I’m told that YVR is planning to put its long term and possibly employee parking in this area, so eventually there will be parking structures nearby, not just empty field.
In this post you’ll find the panoramic photos I took of the station plus a few more (okay, the panoramics are stitched together with Photoshop, if you must know). David Lam, Tafyrn Palecloud, and CJ Stebbing also have more great photos of the station and trains. Here’s the links to their pictures:
And here’s the rest of my photos!
The view inside the station from the north side entrance.
View of the platform just inside the north entrance. I don't think the TV and the Jugo Juice booth will be here during regular station operation :) It also looks like I duplicated the girl in the middle in this photo--sci-fi! Click for a larger version.
View from the station's north side platform. Note the enormous observation deck at the top! That's where you cross over to get to the south side of the platform. Click for a larger version of this photo.
Kinda distorted panorama of the observation deck view. Ehh, I still think it works. Click for a larger version of this photo.

South side escalators, leading up from platform level to the observation deck (that's where you cross over to get to the north side). The escalators were still squeaking since they were so new!

Look what's behind the map display! This was inside the Canada Line car on the south side. Click for a larger version.
