Historic Union Station serves over 32 million people each year, serving as a gateway to some of the world’s most popular destinations. TimHaahs served as project manager and prime design firm for the significant expansion of the existing parking facility. The project provided a more pleasant and convenient parking experience for rail and bus passengers, tourists, and residents.
The parking facility complements the Beaux-Arts style of architecture reflected throughout the Union Station complex. The complex project necessitated construction above operating local and national rail lines beneath the station. Due to the highly visible location, the façade design was deemed critical. TimHaahs worked with the team to obtain approvals from the District of Columbia Commission of Fine Arts and the National Capital Planning Commission to meet the goals of the District’s long term master plan.
