Opps. NVM. Wrong city. There are several places like this proposed in UrbanPlanet cities and I didn't pay attention to where I was posting. The one under construction is in Charlotte. Sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

I heard it broke ground sometime last fall, but everyone seems to be saying that no work is being done on it:

Official groundbreaking was last November, if I remember correctly. No visible work since then.

that good be good actually. If they dont start work for a little whiler longer and mass transit gains more momentum they might be able to better incorporate this into its light rail context or expand its function/design...but I think that the B.C. hotel rennovation might jumpstart the transit center project. They are using Capital Park as a bus stand and once the BC/Ft Shelby are finished that will start to develop and maybe see some use again (and like they did w/ Cadiallac Square) will have to find a new place for buses...and I think Rosa Parks is probably what theyll do considreing it already "broke ground"

does anyone know is it a funding issue?

The Lindell AC is about 2/3 gone now. It'll be a pile of rubble by nightfall.

No, I was in a hurry. It wasn't anything too spectacular. The Lindell AC was one building I wasn't sorry to see go. I'll try to dig up a pre-demolition photo later, but I'm off to bed (I have to work at 5:00am).

I'm confused. Where is Times Square Park in relation to the new transit center? I keep hearing that the station is replacing the park. Needless to say I'm very rarely around that part of downtown, and it confuses me the most.

Times Square is being removed to make way for the transit center. The Lindell AC is located on the traingle south of State St., while Times Square is located on the triangle north of State St. State St. is going away and the two smaller triangles are going to create one larger triangle.

Basically, the facility will sit directly on top of Times Square, the park.

Thanks. I was originally under the impression that it was only filling the park, and not the other triangle.
