Mind-blowing designs for University Circle Rapid Station

Marc Lefkowitz  |  01/26/09 @ 5:20pm

How would RTA, the region's transit agency, invest a chunk (it has $10 million budgeted) of the $62.9 million it hopes to receive from the federal infrastructure stimulus package? By the looks of it, in way impressive fashion.

As a lifelong Clevelander, I have to remind myself that the proposed Rapid Transit rail station at the base of Cedar Hill is the type of world-class design this city deserves and should come to expect.

To paraphrase Steven Litt, the public-private partnership that led to this design should be the model from here on out (RTA used $1 million from the Cleveland Foundation to hire a top-tier designer, and the proof is in the pudding). The designs will go before City Planning tomorrow morning for approval.

What do you think of the future of public transit in Cleveland? Check out these images.
