In the not-so-distant future, Diridon Station can become a great urban hub and the gateway to the Bay Area. If planned well, it will serve as a generator of economic activity and become a place that shapes and showcases all that the South Bay has to offer. What will it take to get to that point, and what can we learn from the station’s forbearers around the world? Join us for a discussion about what makes other urban train stations successful and learn about SPUR's principles for how to turn a grand vision into reality. Co-presented by Northern California APA.
