Boring but not bad, I wish it was replacing a surface parking lot and not some nicer old buildings…

Sounds like my kind of place even though I fall into the Millennial category!

The work is slated to begin immediately with $30 million in renovations and restorations, with additional upgrades scheduled over the next five years totaling $160 million. The upgrades will be funded by the State.

The first phase of renovations will focus on aesthetics such as restoration of the classic benches in the waiting room, installation of brighter lighting, updating of the bathrooms, improved HVAC and air-handling, fresh paint and tile, and a deep clean of the limestone exterior to once again showcase the architecturally significant façade.

In the bus lanes, new lighting and improved drainage will improve the rider experience. And improved directional and way-finding signage will help make sense of this station’s labyrinth of platforms and hallways.

Hopefully that will spur some of those nearby surface parking lots to be replaced with high-rises.

nice to see facades being preserved on both of these projects.
