Today, we are getting our first look at the multi million dollar Railway Exchange Redevelopment Plan. The owner of the building is Hudson Holdings. In the preliminary Renderings of the project, Square appears to be a tenant and one that would be significant to the Downtown office list. The building is also beautifully restored and looks great. Even though these are preliminary plans for the building, they include details on how the interior will look and function. The Architecture firm is Cannon Design.
The old bridge over Olive Street appears that it will be torn down and replaced with a new one. Or it may be renovated heavily. The bridge appears to function as a commons area for the office portion of the project. There is no word yet whether or not there will be a Hotel or residential portion of the project. Included in this project is a Market Hall. We assume that this will e something similar to a food court or food hall like the one at the City Foundry. It would be quite large and include, what appears to be, 22 stalls for retail and restaurants.
In the office space, a cafe at 7th and Olive as well as a atrium that looks down on the Market Hall. The other 2 floors are office space for what could be square. However, that deal has not been approved yet by Square. The developer hopes to begin this restoration + redevelopment project in August 2018.
There are additional renderings and things below. This story will be updated.
