The next component of the Denver Union Station plan we’ll look at is the underground regional bus terminal.
Within the bus terminal’s overall footprint is a pedestrian concourse 44 feet wide and about 780 feet long. The upper-right image includes, at the top, a longitudinal section of the bus terminal, which shows the location of the three pavilions that provide escalator, elevator, and stairway access, as well as additional access points along the length of the terminal. The lower-left image compares the new DUS bus terminal with the existing Market Street Station, which is slightly wider but only one-third as long as the new facility at Union Station. The lower-right image shows a cross section at approximately half-way between Chestnut and Wewatta. Many people have asked about Greyhound, and if they are moving to the new DUS bus terminal. Got a feeling those benches will be needed with all this distance to cover for the poor travelers.
Ota, certainly there will be screens, public art, and some miscellaneous services like coffee, newsstand, etc.
I always found it convenient in my Greyhound travels to stay the night at the Ritz Carlton and wake up refreshed and ready for my 24 hour bus ride to Waco.
Brett: Market Street Station will be made available to the Union Station Neighborhood Company to redevelop as a mixed-use project after DUS is complete. That makes me feel a bit better, given that I’m in a lower-floor Glass House unit overlooking the 17th St. BTW, I’m (mostly) in Houston, where cheap land and developer-driven exurban growth has almost destroyed my hometown. I was hoping there would be a couple places for vendors, snack machines, and decorative fountains and planters in the center of the terminal. I do hope they bring in some tropical plants under the skylights because to me that’s the least effort required to mark a difference between being warm and being sterile. Bus users in Northampton have had their first chance to look round the town's new North Gate bus station. Ive been on these forums a fair while and whilst that doesant excuse anything it does know that people know me and my mind. Yes I agree it is miserable, altough I do agree with jerv with the fact it's the people that make a city not it's buildings, although nice buildings do help! Anyway, the reason why I post pictures of cities on here is to show you all what they really look like (for those who are interested and have not been), I don't choose just to post images of the more celebrated cities on here (i.e- London, Birmingham, Manchester) as I like to add a bit of city variety, and the reason why I visited stoke on this particular occaision was because it was on my list of cities I had yet to see and I was hoping for it to suprise me a little, but unfortunately I was left dissapointed. This isn't an attack on Labour per se, go up to the road and see the difference in Manchester. Unfortunately it seems the regeneration schemes could make everything a whole lot worse in the process, they seem to be levelling entire streets of terraced housing in the city and then not really replacing it until whatever scheme comes through.
Projects like the bus station & hanley shopping centre replacement, the East West Precinct will be an improvement for the most part, but will be wholesale in its nature, involving the demolition of an entire street along with The Coachmakers Arms pub, which is fighting for its survival.
What are they doing with all this demolition, I took my car in for an MOT a few weeks ago and had a good walk around Hanley and seeing so many factories and even the old cinema just demolished is so sad. Austin-Smith: Lord has recently taken the public choice prize for the Stoke-on-Trent Bus Station Competition. Austin-Smith: Lord was one of six architectural practices chosen from over 43 international entrants to participate in a limited invitation design competition for the new ?15m Stoke bus station.
Following the formal submission the team were delighted to see that the practice had topped both the Council?s own public vote and The Architects? Journal?s peer vote when the schemes were anonymously placed on websites for an ?X-Factor? style vote on the preferred solution. An upbeat Richard Cronin had this to say, ?It was a pleasure to take part in such a challenging and interesting exercise and to see how the other teams approached the problems posed by the site both in terms of its operational layout and its historical mining use. The Austin-Smith:Lord team consisted of JMP Transport Engineers, Curtins Structural Engineers, Hilson Moran, Gleeds and RLB. Austin-Smith:Lord were the only team to suggest an alternative to the Drive In-Reverse Out layouts specified within the brief by proposing an innovative drive-through solution which was felt would provide a significantly lower accident risk, given the nature of the site.

The project location was entirely appropriate for designing a ?stand-out? building and the City?s history of pottery and chinaware (with manufacturers such as Spode and Wedgewood) was echoed in the design of a flowing carapace of lightweight ferroconcrete to suggest the qualities and delicacy of fine bone china, whilst providing a shelter from rain and snow to the pedestrian concourse.
Although function and safety were critical, the regenerative effects that the new bus station could bring were immediately clear. A robust cost plan, developed closely with Gleeds, incorporating tender returns from another similar local scheme, ensured the ?15m budget was not exceeded. The new, 7,300m2 public transport interchange will act as a catalyst for future regeneration which will unlock delivery of the new ?250m East West precinct development by Realis Estates. Astride the tropical rainforests and climbing from the mangroves on the Atlantic coast to the snow covered Ruwenzori mountains and the shores of lake Tanganyika in the eastTo view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. The war years brought a spiritual awakening among men whose diversions had never before included a study of self-realization.
Well that would've been nice, more than nice, beautiful, but it only got the public vote, which as always is not the deciding factor in any development like this. Stoke on Trent does not have a city centre as such because it is really a collection of towns.
Right next to Hanley town centre by the way is a sizeable coutry park which used to be a coal mine. The concourse connects the Chestnut Pavilion (discussed in the previous post on the light rail station) with the Union Station Pavilion, a similar portal immediately west of the historic station structure.
At the bottom is a plan view of the facility, which shows the bus gates, bus parking area along the north side, and the pedestrian concourse. However, after further analysis, the project team concluded it would be advantageous to remove them from the terminal’s design.
Greyhound did considered moving to DUS at one point, but they ultimately declined to participate in the project. Unlike Market Street Station which is a rather drab space, the new Union Station bus facility will enjoy plenty of natural light coming from seven skylights located between Chestnut and Wewatta. Remember, we are a well connected city only 30mins from Manchester and Birmingham on the Pendilino. It is a very dissapointing city for someone who isn't familiar with the history of the city. Using a miserable day and pitiful photographic framing to support your thoughts about the place. There's also some obsession with building giant tesco's and levelling entire areas of the city in the process. The new CBD development should improve things, but I worry that in this climate all that will happen is demolition with undeveloped wastelands being left. Other shortlisted practices included Wilkinson Eyre, John McAslan + Partners, Grimshaw, BDP and Zaha Hadid.
It was a welcome diversion to come in and see how we were doing whilst we waited for the interview and it gave us a lift knowing we were obviously doing something right,? explains Transport and Infrastructure Cornerstone, Richard Cronin.
We knew that looking at a drive-through solution was a riskier option but genuinely felt it was the right solution for that site, utilising the ring road, and ensuring separation of the passengers from the buses was key to our approach. Following the 40 day period to prepare detailed submissions, which included proposed layouts and external designs, residents were consulted about the designs and their views formed part of the selection process with the final decision being made by a panel of judges. Building on the successful layout at Wolverhampton Interchange, which was designed by Austin-Smith:Lord in 2009, the team developed a strategy for a 14-bay drive-through facility which met and exceeded the operational capacity requirements of the brief, together with an additional strategy to expand by a further 30% capacity in future, if required.
Natural ventilation, rainwater harvesting and air-source heat pumps were incorporated into the design to meet sustainability requirements.
An orientation was developed to place the main entrance to the bus station on the link between the civic buildings and the proposed precinct to the east. Do the council ever take a few hints from its citizens, you know, the one's that'll actually use the thing, unlike the councillors.
As well as Hanley town centre there are smaller town centres at Longton, Burslem, and Tunstall plus several retail parks and large hypermarkets like the giant Asda at Wolstanton a mile and a half from Hanley.

It will span the width of the 17th Street right-of-way (about 140 feet) and run from the new light rail station to the historic Union Station, a distance of approximately 970 feet. In between, the Wewatta Pavilion provides yet another vertical access point to the bus terminal. Buses from surface streets in Downtown, including the Downtown Circulator, will cross Wynkoop, pass in between the north wing building (IMA Financial) and the historic Ice House, turn left, and descend the same ramp.
Beyond is the Wewatta Pavilion, the commuter rail station, and the west facade of the historic Union Station.
Given the numerous vertical access nodes and concourse cross-over points that necessitate interrupting a travelator path, there was ultimately room for only two travelators (74 and 143 feet in length), which totaled only about one-quarter of the length of the concourse.
Meanwhile, it is my understanding that Greyhound is looking elsewhere within the greater Downtown area for a suitable new location. In that respect the current light rail stations are rather disappointing and I won’t even mention bus stations. You’ll never see or smell anything coming out of the stacks during normal operations. 12th Avenue, do a turn-around somewhere near the art museum, head back north on Lincoln, up 18th Street and down into the bus terminal where it’ll do its two stops before heading back up to the surface to start the cycle all over again. I would say that government investment in the area is criminally low, but that would attract the london brigade who would label me as a northern whinger. Another photographer who wanted to flatter the subject could easily change all your perceptions of the place.
Unfortunately much that is said is true, though there's a lot of people that don't intimately know the city putting the boot in here. And it seems anything left from the Victorian era is swept along with this in a city already architecturally deprived. Unfortunately the practice was unsuccessful in the final selection with Grimshaw Architects being appointed by the Council and the Developer for the adjacent East West Centre who are partially funding the scheme. We pride ourselves on our ability to take another look at the problem to try and see if there is a better way of doing it. An advantage of the revised bus routing was that this link could be kept truly pedestrian, free of all traffic, with the exception of the occasional service vehicle. Their design not matching the one above, at least aesthetically, not necessarily bad though. The city is also full of green open spaces many wild open spaces aswell as several large formal parks.
The terminal will include 22 bus gates: 16 for regional RTD buses, 4 for the Downtown Circulator, and 2 for commercial carriers or for future expansion. Surrounding the pedestrian concourse is the bus drive loop and a bus parking lane along the north side of the terminal.
Additionally, the width of the travelator took up valuable space and reduced the room available for seating and general passenger circulation.
This also enabled a free flow of pedestrians from the bus station into the proposed market square to the north, which in turn, connects to the city centre. Man is a soul, not an institution; his inner reforms alone can lend permanence to outer ones. Downtown Circulator stops are planned for under the commuter rail platforms and for under the Chestnut Pavilion. In 1986 it had the National Garden Festival and that site was redeveloped after the festival with new shops, housing and an entertainment block and parkland. An additional bus ramp north of the light rail station will provide secondary access for the underground facility.
