Station Square is an urban place that merges old and new transportation technologies. Located at the intersection of a historically significant restored electric trolley terminus and a light rail commuter station, the trolley turn table provides a physical connection between regional transit and a neighborhoods local trolley. It is in this idea that the station gains its character, connecting old and new, connecting suburban and urban, connecting light rail, trolleys, buses and automobiles.
Station Square comprises a commuter plaza, a trolley turn table, and an access point to the underground DART Dallas Area Rapid Transit light rail system in Dallas. Situated in a rejuvenated inner city neighborhood, the station becomes a landmark and beacon to commuters and local residents. A series on concrete columns encircle the turntable and support shading and canopy structures. Train tracks reminiscent of vintage-era railroad round houses are one part of an education program intended to increase public awareness of the historic and future importance of mass transit. The plaza is also designed for local community programming, such as concerts and street fairs. More than just a trolley stop, Station Square will connect people.
