Another shot of SkyTrain from MetroTower 3, with the extended station in the centre foreground.
As the landscaping matures, the original greenway in the right-of-way takes on a more important role, given the surrounding towers that now edge it — a necessary relief.
Note how the green flows into Burnaby’s Central Park, and how the residential setback on the left ends a block before the station.  The intent, I assume, is to distinguish the purely residential area to the west from the more mixed-use commercial blocks closest to the station.
