LATE BREAKING NEWS
TAP Architecture has been awarded a contract to rehabilitate the Santa Fe Train Depot and revitalize it into a new Intermodal Transportation Hub
The City of Oklahoma City and COTPA has gained control of the Depot and is ready to move forward on the $28 Million project that will serve as a transit hub for downtown Oklahoma City's new Streetcar System, AMTRAK Passenger Rail Service, Downtown Bus Transit Center, additional trails and sidewalks, re-located Interstate 40, a new Oklahoma City Boulevard and BikeShare Program.
The new Intermodal Hub renovation/restoration will include a grand hall and common area; an Amtrak station area for ticketing, baggage, and waiting area functions. Programming requirements include E.K. Gaylord Boulevard streetscape and connectivity for the various travel modes; including the streetcar, intercity bus, additional bicycle and pedestrian facilities. An improved open space will include a new plaza along the east side of E.K. Gaylord Boulevard between Sheridan and Reno to enhance service and provide a streetcar stop at the front door of the Hub. A tunnel will be extended to provide pedestrian access under the railroad tracks into Bricktown.
Historic Preservation will play a very important role in the project as the depot is a beautiful, 84-year-old structure.
The construction is schedule to begin later this year and open by the middle of 2017.
