Across from The Dillon mixed-use project, Raleigh’s new downtown train depot was two decades in the making: City leaders began discussions in the 1990s about replacing an aging Amtrak station nearby. With more than 14,000 square feet of space for offices, shops and restaurants, Union Station aims to attract more than just commuters. Though no tenants had been signed as of early October, negotiations were continuing for much of the station’s leasable space. An 1,800-square-foot rooftop patio provides a skyline view of downtown Raleigh. Spurred by more than $70 million in federal funding, Union Station was designed with expansion in mind: A second phase could add more bus bays, mixed-use space and commuter rail.
