Nebraska-based architecture firm HDR Architecture has been appointed the architect for the $70m redevelopment of Union Station in Springfield, Massachusetts.

HDR has been hired for $4.2m to design the new Union Station.

The new station is slated to include a main terminal building, measuring over 11,000m², and refurbished passenger train platforms.

The freight building of the current complex will also be demolished and replaced by a bus terminal with a 400-space car park.

Construction of the project is slated to begin in mid-2012 with completion pencilled in for 2015.
