Description

Phase I of the Amtrak Intermodal Gateway Project involved the development of a new garage for the nation’s second-busiest rail terminal – Amtrak’s 30th Street Station. The nine-level, double helix garage boasts 2,100 parking spaces overall (up from the original 1,100), 1,525 of them in the garage, which replaces the western one-third of the old parking deck across Arch Street from the station.

Glazed elevators offer panoramic views of the center city skyline. A glass enclosed stair tower affords views of the railyard space and Philadelphia beyond for rail enthusiasts. An enclosed bridge over Arch Street links the train station and SEPTA concourse to the garage through the lobby of the adjacent office building, Cira Centre.
