The solution proposes to bring back and expand the original transportation function, connect the Union terminal plaza with its neighborhood to be more accessible, and revive the concourse that spanned above the railroad tracks. This new concourse had to be split in two in order to accommodate the railway station concourse and the gallery extension of the Museum center terminal. Read Less
