The Station District is an emerging transit and pedestrian-oriented district at the heart of Union City.
Union City, CA
Intermodal Station District Context
The Station District is home to the Union City Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) station and the future Intermodal Station, which will provide connections to Dumbarton Rail, Capitol Corridor and the Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) Train. Policies that support transit, transit-oriented development, job creation and infrastructure development have guided this growth. Over the past few years, Union City has expanded, upgraded and modernized its BART station; constructed an adjacent 16-bay facility; constructed over 600 new parking stalls for transit users and Station District patrons; and built new connecting streets and public ways.
Union City has invested more than $163 million in infrastructure, amenities, parks and playgrounds in the District to transform former industrial and brown field lands into more productive uses. The East Plaza, a new public park with the sculpture, “The Dancers” by the acclaimed French sculptor, Louis Debré, has been completed. A pedestrian promenade lined with palm trees, adjacent to Block 3, has also been completed and will lead to a new entrance of the BART station. The new East entrance to the BART station is scheduled for completion in 2017. The East West Connector, planned for completion in 2017, will provide a secondary access road to the Station District
Station District Redevelopment
The City selected Windflower Properties as the master developer for the remaining undeveloped residential sites in the Union City Station District. Windflower Properties will create a new urban community in the Station District. With a full build-out of three parcels, we envision a walkable, compact, urban neighborhood with a mix of shops and services and numerous pedestrian and bike connections to parks and other established retail centers in the city.
