Editorial

Grimshaw to begin final phase of the Los Angeles Union Station Master Plan 

Grimshaw, in partnership with Gruen Associates, will begin the third and final phase of the Los Angeles Union Station Master Plan.  Awarded in 2012, Metro, the station's owner, recently green-lighted the final phase of the project which aims to enhance passenger and visitor experience by forging new connections to nearby destinations and inspire a mix of uses that reflect a shifting demographic of users. 

The scheme includes a new multi-modal concourse with a grand civic space, a relocated bus plaza, and the potential integration of a high-speed rail station at the site.  The scheme preserves the celebrated qualities of the historic structure and its surrounding 17 hectares while addressing the urgent needs of the future.  

It is hoped that an increased level of activity combined with renewed access, easier navigation and open space improvements will encourage visitors to linger and make Union Station a full-time destination in Los Angeles.
