East Michigan Street T.O.D.
This vibrant east Indy neighborhood is focused on connecting regional communities to and from downtown, providing experiential gateways that frame the Indianapolis skyline. The train platform serves as a hub for social, environmental and economical programs by linking regions on the near east side to the city. The design was framed with an urban ecological approach that reduces fragmentation and provides an increased amount of natural connections for both people and wildlife.
