9 Avenue N. Green Line Station
The 9 Avenue N. station will be a surface station in the community of Crescent Heights. It will be located near 9 Avenue N. and Centre Street. This new station will provide added direct connections to the Crescent Heights community, area businesses and Crescent Heights High School. The 9th Avenue N. Station is envisioned to be a smaller community station that can be accommodated within the project budget and designed to fit within the context of the neighbourhood.

This station will also help enable opportunities for future transit-oriented development along the south end of the Centre Street corridor. In addition to local amenities, this station will provide access to valued regional destinations of McHugh Bluffs, Sunnyside Bank Park (Field of Crosses) and a new multi-use pathway connection from Crescent Heights to Downtown Calgary using the proposed LRT bridge.
