Union Station Master Plan Vision Board Viewing Next Week

I think we all are curious about what Metro’s plans are for Los Angeles Union Station. In November Metro announced six architectural firms had been selected as finalists to compete to be chosen to prepare the Master Plan for the site.

April 25 there will be an opportunity to view the Vision Boards of the six firms. The event is free and open to the public and will be held in the Old Ticket Room of Union Station (Alameda St. side).

Presentations will be from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm with viewing from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

And this announcement states Metro Board Chair and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio R. Villaraigosa will be in attendance.

Should be interesting.

My thanks to transit activist Ken Ruben for bringing this event to my attention.

    Whatever they come up with it should include those cool yellow and black taxi cabs in the picture postcard.

    I’m more frightened for what civic vandalism will be foisted on Union Station in the name of the (Endless) War on Terror.  I am sure LA Metro sees the temptation of the teat of  Fatherland Security as a funding source to turn a now well functioning station (after the old gates were removed in the early 1990’s for Metrolink) into a modern day version of Bahnhof Freiderichstrasse mit traenenpalast all to Keep Amerika Safe™ because it will also allow for the renovation TLC that the building probably needs.

    Look at what Houston is doing to itself:

    Bike station @ union station, remove the useless surface lots at the front of the station, re-open the other half of the station (currently only open for filming and events), increase walkability and bikability to el pueblo and downtown, and give the tunnel under the tracks on Cesar Chavez a road diet.
