I think doing something like this with the empty pedestal in the south facade of the station would be cool. Maybe the Nelson could get involved?

Rescued from the edge

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — If ever there was a model of a decaying station brought back to vibrancy, it would be in Kansas City.

Singers film music videos in Union Station’s Grand Plaza. Travelers board Amtrak trains bound for Los Angeles or St. Louis. Schoolchildren arrive by the busload to tour its science museum.
