Union Station Master Plan Update, Tonight

Draft Alternative 1

Tonight marks another milestone in the Union Station Master Plan project. Metro will unveil four alternatives that will be studied, based on the feedback given during stakeholder outreach and public meetings. Honestly, each of the four look like large improvements over the current design and layout of the station.

We were planning a big preview of the meeting, but it honesty wouldn’t have looked much different than the piece The Source did last night. Check out their preview and nearly a dozen renderings of various proposals for Union Station.

The community workshop begins tonight at  5:30 p.m. in the  Japanese American National Museum, Aratani Central Hall, 100 N. Central Avenue. The meeting will be broadcast online at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/lausmp
