ROSSETTI designed 20 new QLINE stations that are located along 3.3 miles of Woodward Avenue. Each glass and concrete station reflects a strong modern form that blends with the civic architecture of Detroit. Each location incorporates a different color of Pewabic tile, the iconic ceramic tile unique to the Motor City. Space for sponsorship was also incorporated into the design. Each station honors the corporate and philanthropic partners whose support brought the QLINE street car to life. Rider amenities at every QLINE station include heating, concrete bench seating, sufficient lighting, WIFI access, a security camera, ticket vending machines, emergency phone and next-vehicle alert screens. The shelters are made of precast concrete with an anti-graffiti admixture with five-panel glass partitions. Extreme care was taken to promote transparency between areas behind the shelters and the station platforms for user safety and to minimize obstruction to circulation. These stations unify the urban experience, enhance a destination, sculpt a place within the city and accommodate all seasons of ridership.
