Well also the fact that the green line lrt (minneapolis-St paul) was stopping right in from of this station. And Amtrak was moving here, as well as other commuter trains and future high speed rail as well as BRT kind of pushed this project to get done. I'd love to see it in Detroit, a city we'll see a lot on here soon.

Union Station in Toronto is also going through major, long-term renovations ATM. Should look great when finished.

The building I mentioned in my post is this one (bottom left in the first of the old pictures):

It's has gotten a decent reclad a couple of years ago, and now it looks like this:




btw: that train station make-over is amazing!!!

Both aren't exactly architectural world-beaters, but there are quite a few of those drab, grim concrete bunkers in my hometown, so personally I'm happy they did something to at least one of them. I actually quite like the reclad, although rather simplistic in execution, imo. it looks more color-/playful and contemporary than before. But it's the low-rise section that got the best make-over:

Unfortunately, photos of this building are almost nonexistent, but the change is very obvious.
