With the challenges facing Union Station, does it make sense to redevelop the property with an emphasis on transit-oriented-development at or under the current train shed/surface parking lot area?
The site is large enough to support a mixed income, multi-family, rental and/or homeownership development of 100 units or more.
The train shed superstructure could remain or be removed. If it were preserved, the development would be similar to gasometer adaptive ruse projects in other parts of the world.
The location has convenient access to jobs and light rail, and would support the retail, restaurant, and hotel uses of the historic train station.
