Main Street Station

Location: Richmond, VA
Construction Schedule: September 2001 - August 2003
Construction Value: $14,991,127

Description:

The project is Phase 1 of a multi-phase series of projects to create a “Multi-Modal” Transportation Center from the existing Main Street Station. This phase includes restoration of the Head House only, while restoration of the Train Shed will occur in future phases. The work of this phase will occur while offices of various agencies of the Commonwealth of Virginia occupy the Train Shed.

The work of this phase includes construction of a new 500-foot long platform adjacent to the existing railroad tracks for passenger loading/unloading. In addition the work includes restoration of the Head House, both interior and exterior, and specifically addresses restoration of the Terra Cotta trim elements and masonry as well as the windows, doors, and wood trim. The lower two levels are restored to once again serve as a Train Station, this time for Amtrak, while the upper three levels receive only basic renovation upgrades to be completed at a later date by the tenant. The famed Clock Tower is restored, complete with new clock motor and restoring the faces on all sides.

The site development includes a reconfigured parking lot, handicapped accessible ramp, brick paved sidewalks, and a stone enclosed remote area for mechanical equipment.
