LOS ANGELES (AP) - Union Station in downtown Los Angeles is due for a major makeover.

The Los Angeles Metropolitan Transportation Authority is proposing improvements that will add 3.25 million square feet of new development space and a subterranean concourse. But the price is yet to be determined.

Officials predict the number of travelers using Union Station between now and 2040 will double from 70,000 to 140,000. That also assumes the construction of the bullet train between Los Angeles and San Francisco goes on.

Metro officials tell the Los Angeles Times (https://lat.ms/1tEG29X ) include a hotel, office towers, residences, retail shops, cafes and snack bar. A small, existing parking lot will be replaced with a civic center.
