Los Angeles Union Station Master Plan

Los Angeles Union Station Master Plan

The Master Plan established guidelines for open space, circulation, and sustainable landscape strategies for the future of Los Angeles’ historic Union Station. The Plan prepares the station’s 47-acre campus for the growth of light rail and the probable addition of high speed rail, while improving pedestrian and bicycle connections to El Pueblo and Downtown Los Angeles. The landscape design focus is on the Forecourt, where a pedestrian plaza will replace the parking lot and tie into green street improvements along Alameda. The design integrates stormwater management, pedestrian and bicycle access, and climate-appropriate habitat while protecting the historic status of the Station’s design.
