Video: Proposed future of Union Station

For those interested in learning more about what Union Station could evolve during the next 15 or 20 years, Amtrak and developer Akridge have released a six-minute video of what the station could look like if Amtrak’s $7 billion plan comes to fruition.

There are no shots of the inside, but the video offers a feel for the Burnham Place development that Akridge is planning to build above the rail yard behind the station.

Take a gander, for instance, at how the H Street and NoMa neighborhoods would connect with the new development. The view from H Street Northeast looking west can be seen beginning at about the 1:40 minute mark.

The video was produced by Shalom Baranes Associates, Akridge’s architect for Burnham Place. Amtrak’s design and engineering partners include Parsons Brinckerhoff and HOK.
