South Station is a magnificent example of civic architecture that enriches the public environment and has become an engine of commerce.

Retail development of 40,000 SF ground floor in restored train station, including 9,000 SF food hall
Transform a renovated train station through innovative development of its ground floor, respecting its historic status and primary transportation function.
Create a great meeting place reminiscent of an active, successful urban plaza lined with shops and cafes to serve passengers and nearby office workers alike; combine an urbane design ambiance with respect for historic detailing.
As has South Station itself, the retail concourse has stood the test of time. The retail program won multiple awards and has served as a design example for other transportation centers such as New York City’s Grand Central Station.
