Our Phased Plan

The Master Plan prescribes a phased plan for redevelopment of the Terminal and identifies key activation opportunities to leverage unique spaces that support local and regional enterprises, tourism and cultural exchange. Early activation of the Civic Commons – a year-round event venue forthe sharing of civic experiences by all – brings people back to the main concourse and the grounds. Later phases focus on the expansion of programs and activation of other parts of the building.

Our Priorities

Stabilize, adapt, and sustainably reuse the Terminal and grounds

Re-establish the Terminal as a hub of activity – a beacon and a destination that attracts people and investment

Celebrate and foster community voice and connections that shape broader revitalization efforts

Join and elevate the strong future of the city and region


Create an ENGAGING CIVIC COMMONS as a year-round venue of events and activities centered around the Passenger Concourse – and a public plaza and adjacent grounds.

Create WELCOMING OPEN SPACES with activated grounds and year-round use, recreational activities and events, to drive interest and support future building uses.

Leverage a DYNAMIC MIX OF USES – Cultural Center, Nonprofit Anchor, Innovation Hub, Housing, Film Industry – so that early phases will support a range of complementary creative, entrepreneurial and civic enterprises.

Support COMMUNITY QUALITY OF LIFE by tying our future to Broadway Fillmore and being an important part of social and racial equity through the Terminal’s reuse.

Utilize SUSTAINABLE SYSTEMS AND PRACTICES while respecting the historic identity of the building and grounds.

Our Next Steps

1)  Select Developer(s) through a two stage process, starting with a Request for Expression of Interest (RFEI) that was issued in August, 2022 and then a Request for Proposal (RFP) that will be issued to selected teams.

2)  Activate the Great Lawn with events and activities.

3)  Utilize funding to stabilize the Central Terminal and start the Civic Commons, by reopening the Concourse and making the outside spaces safe and useable.
