Cap Metro close to packing up Pine Street Station

Thursday, April 14, 2016 by Caleb Pritchard

The Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority is on the verge of busing a historic building away from the spot it has called home since possibly the 1920s. On Tuesday, the agency’s Operations, Safety and Planning Committee unanimously voted to relocate a portion of the Pine Street Station building from 414 Waller St. to 979 Springdale Road. The full board of directors will likely rubber-stamp that vote on consent at its next meeting on April 25. The complicated engineering maneuver is necessary in order to make way for the Plaza Saltillo redevelopment project, which will transform the 10-acre site currently occupied by Pine Street Station, an erstwhile art studio and events space, into a large mixed-use development.
