• Columbus Plaza / WASHINGTON, DC

Transit

Lee and Associates prepared a comprehensive plan for the reconstruction of Columbus Plaza at Union Station. The historic plaza, which stands in the middle of a large traffic circle, includes a memorial to Christopher Columbus as well as several prominent fountains. Preservation of the historic elements and character of the plaza were critical. Lee and Associates studied and reworked vehicular and pedestrian traffic, easing congestion and maximizing efficiency and safety. New planting and hardscape areas were added to expand and complement the existing plaza.
