Join us for the TOD Placemaking & Station Area Planning webinar!

Learn the key principles and best practices of creating great places, lively districts, and a synergistic mix of uses. Learn the many ways cities, planning agencies, and rail stations are encouraging quality, walkable, mixed-use environments and great public spaces.

Hear from Beverley Swaim-Staley, President & CEO of Union Station Redevelopment Corporation – manager of Washington DC’s iconic Union Station, one of the busiest transportation centers in the country - serving over 37 million visitors and passengers each year.

Beverley will give an update on the station and its $8.3 Billion modernization and TOD project being planned for the station known as Burnham Place – 9 million square feet of new mixed-use development that will be built above Union Station’s tracks. The development will feature a mix of first-class office, residential, retail, and hotel space, as well as parks and plazas.

Hear from Brian O’Looney, Principal at Torti Gallas Architects in Washington DC, where he serves as principal designer for many notable mixed-use, transit-oriented projects. Brian will share principles of project design and placemaking from his more than 20 years experience planning and designing a variety of technically complex building types that seamlessly integrate a mix of uses.

Learn the successful methods to transform existing places, increase access, tame traffic, reduce and hide parking, and make places pedestrian, bike and scooter friendly.
