Lappas + Havener Starts on Raleigh Union Station Project

Lappas + Havener began work on the Raleigh Union Station with Clearscapes. The project will be a multi-modal transportation hub in downtown Raleigh and will include adaptive reuse of an industrial building, rail improvements and increased connectivity within the downtown community.

The first phase of the $73 million Raleigh Union Station is located at 510 West Martin Street in the existing Dillon Supply Company Warehouse, also known as the Viaduct Building. Planning and construction of the new station is a joint initiative of the North Carolina Department of Transportation Rail Division and the City of Raleigh. This project is among improvements to the railroad corridor between Raleigh and Charlotte to increase railroad capacity, efficiency, and safety.

Phase I includes design development. Along with its partners, Surface 678 will solicit feedback from citizens, boards and commissions, stakeholders, and technical experts which have helped to shape the project into an iconic gateway with lasting civic value. The project will continue its outreach and public participation throughout the fall and winter of 2013/2014.
