Finalists named for Union Station Masterplan

The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority has selected six finalists to design a new master plan for Union Station. The finalists are Ehrenkrantz, Eckstut & Kuhn Architects; Gruen Associates/Grimshaw Architects; IBI Group/Foster + Partners; Moore Rubell Yudell; NBBJ/Ingenhoven Architects; and Renzo Piano Building Workshop/Parsons Transportation Group.

The winning team will be tasked with devising a plan for the 72 year old rail hub and 38 acres of surrounding land that will consider commercial development, future parking domains, connectivity to nearby neighbourhoods, pedestrian and bicycle access and how the station will accommodate growing transportation needs. An architect will be selected in March 2012 with completion of the plan expected August 2013.
