Downtown Berkeley Station Modernization

Downtown Berkeley Station Modernization Plan

Downtown Berkeley Station Modernization Concourse Rendering

One element of the BART Station Modernization Plan for Downtown Berkeley is an update to the concourse ceiling, walls and floor to “refresh” the station, integrate with the new plaza design and hide utilities. This image shows a possible new ceiling treatment - the pattern, materials and color will be designed by BART with customer input.

The Downtown Berkeley Station Modernization Plan aims to create a community-based vision for modernizing the station with a high standard of design excellence, functionality and cost effectiveness. It will identify and prioritize long-term improvements to guide future investment in the station, including fixing and upgrading core existing station and system facilities to keep the station functioning well, as well as other proposed upgrades to improve station circulation, access and customer experience. Further input from the upcoming outreach events and online survey will help BART prioritize the order in which investments will be made as funding becomes available.

This Plan is distinct from, but complementary to, the Downtown Berkeley Plaza Project , which has gone through a separate community planning process in partnership with the City of Berkeley, and will begin construction this fall.
