Today we are going to look at an already familiar project that has recently been renamed. The Platform at Union Station, formally known as 1650 Wewatta, is the 21-story apartment tower rising in the Union Station Neighborhood. Of course there is more to update than just the name change. Let’s take a look!
‘The Platform’ is a very fitting name for this project because this building will be right up against the commuter rail train hall. Talk about great access to multiple transit options right outside the front door! As far as construction progress is concerned, it’s always exciting when a building breaks ground level because we will, for one, be able to see it rise and two, since the foundation and underground parking structure take longer to build, we should see the main structure go up at a much quicker pace!
Here are two additional shots of the project from my favorite vantage point. You can now clearly see how much of the block the building is going to take up. The lot directly south of ‘The Platform’ is planned for a future development.
These are very exciting times for the Union Station neighborhood and I’m sure it will be a very exciting sight seeing the tallest building in the redevelopment field rise! The 288-unit apartment building is expected to be complete around December 2014.
