Union Station

As part of the planned renovation of Union Station, the city is holding a “precinct study” to look at how to renovate the area around the station — one of the most heavily used pedestrian areas in the city, but one whose decrepit state does not reflect its importance to the city.

Two public meetings are scheduled to enable the public to provide input into this process:

The second in a series of public forums that are part of an ongoing Union Station precinct study will be held on Tuesday, December 13 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Metro Hall Rotunda, 55 John Street. The forum will include a presentation at 7 p.m.

The December 13 forum seeks public input on options for Front Street, alternatives for a future north west PATH connection from Union Station and options for possible construction over the Union Station trainshed.

A further precinct study public forum scheduled for February 21, 2006, will examine urban design options for the precinct study area and heritage guidelines under consideration.

The precinct study includes a heritage conservation district study, urban design work and transportation planning elements for the area around Union Station. The study’s goal is to create an enhanced and integrated public realm.
