Over on Skyscraper City, the indispensable Cory Wilson has posted a beautiful nugget on Mass Transit here in Indianapolis. It looks like they are taking the most obvious route for now: down the Nickel Plate line, and ending in Union Station. (An anecdote: At the meeting I attended for Mass Transit, I was sitting next to an older gentleman. When the presenter mentioned that the city will need to locate the station downtown. He turned to me and said “how about Union Station?” I certainly agreed with that.) I’m glad that Mayor Ballard has turned his interest in this direction after some early signs that scared most of us urbanists. 2011 (the projected launch of the rail line) can not get here soon enough.
Confirmation on the Star.
