The Downsview Towers are a pair of office towers designed after the Petronas Towers in Malaysia. The path between the two office buildings, found on Lewiston Avenue, crosses over the MRT's Zephyr Line tracks, just below, south of  ZS21  station.

The Downsview Welcome Center, designed similarly to the Delaware Welcome Center, is meant to serve travelers coming from the Highway A50.png into the city.
