Offered will be public plazas and passenger concourses as well as the retail, hotels, offices and residences of Burnham Place. The focal point of H Street is a grand plaza and a new northern entrance to Union Station which has dramatic views of the concourses, trains and platforms below. to the north of H Street, this plaza will provide a vibrant public space with retail and restaurants, and connect to quiet neighborhood parks. A new park will provide a connection to the northern continuation of the Metropolitan Bike trail. The project is a collaboration between USrC, Amtrak, Akridge and other stakeholders. The six million SF of renovation and new development will result in 10 new entrances, 5,000 parking spaces, new and expanded tracks and platforms, a new train shed and a new lower level concourse for future high-speed rail service. The entire project is expected to take about 15–25 years to complete.
