King Street Station Complex

-A A +A
1984–1992, Keyes Condon Florance. 1904 Diagonal Rd., 1725–1775 Duke St., and 225 Reineker Ln. (occupies entire block)

The station complex, designed to fill a wedgeshaped site, contains a variety of uses, including offices, a Metro station, retail space, and a hotel. A crescent form recalling examples in Bath, England, helps define the street front on both sides and is an interesting example of urbanistic models well employed.
