Twenty years in the making, St. Louis recently opened its $27 million Gateway Transportation Center, a 37,000-sf multi-modal building that provides facilities for Amtrak passenger train and Greyhound bus service in a single 700-foot-long structure. Designed by KAI Design & Build, St. Louis, the facility features a long, curving design that illustrates its purpose for moving people. Train passengers walk through an enclosed multi-colored glass walkway and two sets of stairs, elevators, and escalators to reach the Amtrak train platforms at one end of the building. The Building Team included general contractor K&S Associates, architect Kiku Obata & Company, civil engineer Jacobs, and landscape architect SWT Design Inc., all based in St. Louis.
