Sustainable Cities- Potential E&N stations with Value Capture Elements

ITO has partnered with the University of Victoria (U-Vic) and the Sustainable Cities program headed by Professor Cam Owen in the spring of 2020. ITO presented the following Power-point presentation

Altogether we had eight students participate. They worked in teams of 2 to do studies on 4 potential railway stations that utilized Value Capture in order to help pay for the rehabilitation of the railway as well as making very urban nodes surrounding these stations. Overall, I was very happy with the quality of the studies but felt that the students could have been thinking a little more like greedy bankers in order to help amass the amount of funding required to rehabilitate this line.

Here are the four studies:

  1. Victoria Terminus Station
  2. Admirals Road Station
  3. Six Mile Station Report
  4. Alexander Frasher Assignment
