Description/Abstract

In many cases today, the train station as a connection point between the commute and the stationary mode of living or working, is a congestion point of personal and community modes of traffic resulting in an underthought chance for saturated development.

Incorporation of a Chicago high-speed rail station will pioneer new solutions to congestion and economic growth within this particular sub-standard city, drawing on landscape traditions while incorporating water, energy and pedestrian networks to connect the futuristic ideals to compound issues. It will alleviate housing shortages and provide a platform for reinstallment of impoverished families into the climing economic core.
