From the initial feasibility study to a transformative renovation, GuernseyTingle helps our clients at all stages of a project.
GuernseyTingle produced a feasibility study for the City of Williamsburg and assisted them in obtaining grants to purchase and renovate the historic 1935 city train station. Once the grants were successfully received, our team developed documents for the renovation of the building for use as a multi-modal transportation facility.
This 4,540 square foot facility, which is located in the heart of the city, provides significantly enhanced facilities and services to the traveling public, while respecting the historic fabric of the original 1935 colonial revival structure, which was significant for having hosted numbers of visiting dignitaries throughout its past.
In addition to the transformation of the building, the site has been reorganized to provide a greatly improved flow of traffic through the station. This has been accomplished by separating the public parking areas from the drop-off and pickup areas, as well as by providing separate locations for local transit, inter-city buses, car rental and taxis. A satellite parking area has also been added to accommodate longer term parking needs.
