Gateway Terminus: Santa Monica’s Icon
Light Rail Station

Description:

With the proposed expansion of the LRT to Santa Monica, this concept projects a possible terminus for the new metro aqua line. This concept explores the possibilities of a new metro line as well as other potential uses of the site.

Site Location:
34° 0'48.32"N, 118°29'27.15"W
402 Colorado Ave
Santa Monica, CA 90401

Design Intent:
The intent stems from the observed lack of program between the Santa Monica civic center and the promenade's business district. Thus, the goal is to relink these two areas thus expanding the business district of Santa Monica on the Northeast and Southeast axis through 4th Street leading to possible re-development of the civic & sears parking. With the intended terminus, a gateway is created for tourists as well as residents to the center of Santa Monica and a prime public transportation point.
