Union Station Intermodal Transportation
Since 1911, this Beaux Arts building has served as a landmark in the city of Worcester. The building had been vacant for 25 years when Finegold Alexander was retained to restore the station for reuse as an Intermodal Transportation Center, incorporating commuter rail and bus services, travel support facilities and a 500-car parking facility. Part of the renovation project involved the reintroduction of the 175-foot towers that had been removed in 1926 due to structural weakness. The new towers were constructed using an internal steel armature and GFRP panels. Without existing documentation, the interiors were restored and enhanced using segments of found details.
