An increase in passenger, retail and office activity in and around the station will help improve safety and security. The proposed project includes converting the existing landscaped area in front of the Annex to a public plaza that could support outdoor seating, public art or a seasonal farmer’s market. Lighting levels will be improved on the new platforms and around the building. Inside the station, the existing restrooms will be relocated and modernized, access to the upstairs offices will be more secure, and currently under-used areas will have future retail, concession or seating areas.
