LA Union Station Master Plan project won by Grimshaw Architects and Gruen Associates

Grimshaw Architects and Gruen Associates have been selected to design the Los Angeles Union Station Master Plan. On 28 June 2012, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Board of Directors, chaired by Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, approved a nomination that sets in motion a two year master plan creation process for the historic station and 40 surrounding acres in downtown Los Angeles.

The approval of the team selection is the culmination of a multi?step process that narrowed an initial list of 22 teams down to a shortlist of six before ultimately selecting the Grimshaw/Gruen team. This will be the first west coast project for Grimshaw who has been operating in the Americas out of New York since 2001. Grimshaw’s primary partner in the endeavour, Gruen Associates, is a Los Angeles practice with over 65 years of diverse experience bringing large scale public projects to life including recent work on Metro’s Orange Line Extension bus rapid transit line and Exposition Line light rail.
