One good location for a maintenance facility and car barn would be the lower level of the site bounded by the river, Roosevelt, Clark, and 15th St, where the surrounding streets are elevated. The lower level could also accommodate a new Metra station with links to the broader central business district via the Superloop and Clark Street streetcars. From street level up could be a mixed-use development that benefits greatly from all the passenger traffic and connectivity. The central location offers operational advantages for the streetcar network.
