Union Station expansion project’s massive garage draws criticism from Akridge, D.C. officials 

The amount of parking spaces included in the massive redevelopment of Union Station has become a flashpoint in the debate over the long-planned project, with D.C. officials and neighbors alike arguing for a substantial reduction in parking on the property.

Plans call for 1,575 spaces in a new, 10-story garage replacing the station’s existing parking structure, which sits on First Street NE. The Federal Rail Administration and the Union Station Redevelopment Corp., the main groups managing the extensive revitalization effort, say that they’ll need that much parking to accommodate travelers and patrons of the station’s retail offerings. Parking fees are also expected to help fund the costly project.
