Grand Arc Mall Headpiece: Union Station

This side was cluttered by the unsightly and unsymmetrical parking garage.

This second photo's area has since been cluttered by misplaced real estate development.

IMHO the parking garage and other such clutter ought to be demolished and replaced with something that for just a start is symmetrical, and more architecturally complimentary, and which preserves the vistas extending northerly from the axis of Union Station's flanking roadways.

Alas, monumental symmetricy appears to be lacking in what's in store for Union Station's backside areas.

The above rendering of the "Burnham Project" reinforces my hunch that the authorities seek to obliterate this transportation corridor's monumental thrust.
