RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Architects designing Raleigh's new station for Amtrak and commuter trains are seeking the opinions of the public about their work.
The News & Observer of Raleigh reported (http://bit.ly/Z9Hba4) the Raleigh firm Clearscapes will attend a public workshop Wednesday night about the design of Union Station. The workshop will be held in the Meymandi Concert Hall lobby of the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts
The $60 million station is scheduled to open in 2017 in Raleigh's Warehouse District. It will replace the cramped station that's one of the busiest Amtrak stations in the Southeast, serving 200,000 passengers a year. It's also one of the smallest.
Clearscapes has until July to finish the first of three planning stages.
