Akridge plans a large mixed-use, transit oriented development above the rail yard at Union Station. The developer purchased the air rights to build the estimated 3 million square feet of development on an elevated platform above the train tracks. The project is named for Daniel Burnham, the architect of Union Station. According to the project's website: "The site is expected to include first-class office, residential, hotel and retail uses, and includes expansions and enhancements to Union Station." The project will be built in phases over many years, and will include: 1.5 million square feet of office space, 1,300+ residential units. This project is contingent upon both the larger Union Station expansion and the reconstruction of the Hopscotch Bridge. Shalom Baranes is the project architect and the buildings are approved to rise 90-130 feet above the bridge. The FRA is expected to release its draft EIS and announce its preferred alternative for the Union Station expansion early next year.
