Amtrak has selected a development team to lead its $400 million renovation at Philadelphia’s 30th Street Station. Gilbane Building Company has been named as part of the team. This renovation includes adding retail and offices spaces, as well as improve traffic flows around the building.
From Philly Voice:
The project will be led by Plenary Infrastructure in partnership with Gilbane Building Co., Johnson Controls Inc. and Vantage Airport Group Ltd., Amtrak officials announced Friday. This team will oversee multiple phases of design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance at the station — formally named William H. Gray III 30th Street Station – during the next 50 years, Amtrak spokesperson Beth Toll said.
On the interior, the first phase of the project calls for improved amenities, revamped retail offerings and expansion of the station’s commercial potential. Customer area renovations will include upgrades to the restrooms, ticketing and baggage, the north side waiting room and the metropolitan lounge. Amtrak’s two office towers also will be renovated.
