Amtrak Claytor Concourse Modernization Project

In partnership with Amtrak, USRC will be undertaking reconstruction of the Claytor Concourse in Union Station. The design of the Claytor Concourse Modernization Project is led by Amtrak, in consultation with the firms KGP Design Studio, Grimshaw Architects, and ARUP. The project will reconstruct and modernize the Claytor Concourse to provide expanded passenger flow and additional areas for boarding and queuing, improve amenities, and address safety egress issues. A major part of this project will be the addition of a new Metropolitan Lounge for Amtrak riders (currently Club Acela). In advance of the Claytor Concourse Modernization Project, some existing programmatic elements will be relocated, including the Amtrak Police Department and HVAC mechanical units.
