City of Union City Wins Award

Submitted By Rhea Serran

On April 12, the City of Union City was presented the Association of Bay Area Governments' (ABAG) Building a Better Bay Area - Urban Design Award for the Intermodal Station District project. The City's Intermodal Station is the center point of a robust, transit-oriented community with development opportunities to the east and west sides of the BART station that brings residents and businesses together with local and regional transportation systems.

Surrounding the station are high-density housing, retail shopping, commercial business, industrial land, and open space - all in close proximity to I-880, AC Transit, and the Dumbarton Express. Landscaped pedestrian walkways and bike paths make it both convenient and enjoyable for residents and workers to leave the car behind and reduce carbon emissions.

"The City is very proud of the recognition received by ABAG. The development of the Station District will transform former industrial acreage into a vibrant, integrated neighborhood that will enable residents to live, work, shop and play in the same area," said Larry Cheeves, City Manager, City of Union City. "The project was designed to protect the environment and improve the quality of life."
