With renewed interest in dense urban areas, personal transportation between these destinations will also grow in importance. Rather than directing cars to remote parking areas, hampering the transition to the city, we propose developing a "grand central station for cars". The purpose is to rethink the experience of arrival, to be inventive in the way that it deals with the challenge of storing cars, to accommodate the developing technologies of environmentally responsible personal vehicles, and to help "plug" commuters into the city by making a strong connection to the street and the neighboring Leather District and China Town neighborhoods.
