That is fantastic! Due to my limited experience of San Antonio I am a little confused on just where this is located. I tried Google maps and can't seem to find the depot they are going to redo to build this. Could someone please point it out to me? I found a museum north of downtown, but the article says it is west of downtown. This looks quite nice.
Also, hopefully Austin does something like this for the Austin side of the LSR project. I wonder if they did do something like this where it would be? Everything I have seen for the Austin side of the LSR, is that the downtown location is going to be the Amtrak station
. That whole area has been bought up and under continuous development the past few years, and on the back side of it is the YMCA so they can't do much of anything that way. Also the Austin Metro Rail is on the east side of downtown at the Convention Center, while the Amtrak is on the west side of downtown near Lamar. It would be nice to get all of that together in one place for the LSR SA to Austin commuter line.
Having two nice hubs just like this one SA is planning in both downtown SA and downtown Austin I think would go a long way to helping the LSR become a reality and a smashing success. And it would be great to create more of a stronger SA and Austin connection for all of our fantastic local business. Each city helps each other be stronger and more successful that way. Plus anything that can be done to help that traffic mess that is I-35 is great!
