GCRTA Little Italy Station

The Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority constructed a new Red Line Station where the train line crosses Mayfield Road to service both University Circle as well as the Little Italy neighborhood. City Architecture designed the new station to be constructed within an existing hillside site that includes a vacated train bridge and concrete vault within the bridge abutment. The station design takes the austere heaviness of the concrete and transforms its appearance to the upper head house into bright precast concrete and glass with a hint of aggregate sparkle. Waves of stainless steel mesh and LED light accents focus its presence on the main entrance way, eroding away under 4 train bridges and emerging towards University Circle to signal the presence of the station beyond and create a visual gateway to Little Italy. Further enhancements include pieces of artwork incorporated into the station that evoke the presence of a strong, vibrant Italian community that is ever present in the neighborhood. Working in conjunction with surrounding development, the Mayfield Road Station provides a multi-modal transit hub defining a true Transit Oriented Development district.
