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.
