This $55-million renovation and modernization project kept intact the 100-plus-year-old King Street Station's historic elements, including the original windows and doors, while performing a complete structural upgrade. During construction, the station, which serves about 10,000 people a day, remained operational. Highlights of the project included the rehabilitation of the structure's iconic 12-story clock tower, the repair and restoration of the main waiting room, and the installation of seismic upgrades, which met LEED Platinum standards. One judge called the project "really impressive," and another said it "has it all," including "innovative sustainability solutions" and "outstanding craftsmanship."
