It may be too late but the City should have tried to re-use US as a train station. Why have an Amtrak/MetroBus/MetoLink Hub blocks away from what would have made a perfect location (US)? Come to think of it, most large, rail transport hubs that I've been in (Penn Station, 30th Street Station, Washington Union, Gare de Nord et Austerlitz, Centraal Station, Roma Termini, etc.) all had "malls" located within their terminals. Furthermore, almost EVERY European rail station - small, medium or large - had some semblance of shopping and dining options. US seems like a good fit considering a) the name, b) the location of US to the rail lines and c) the presence of restaurants and shopping.
Yet another sad example of civic leadership "missing the mark".
