yeah, it probably would echo a lot. I'd imagine they can put some unintrusive damper material behind those supports. the roof is designed to open as well, so that could help on sunny days.



of course, we'll see if that added feature really gets built. still, its great no matter what, especially considering most of it is underground

Tucson Train Station

The small Tucson, Arizona train station was built in 1907: There are only a couple of trains a week that stop on their way from Chicago/Texas to Los Angeles. The train station has been renovated and will soon host a new restaurant.





These are plans to revitalize the area around the train station:
