Next to former St. Louis Centre Building, Eastbound Convention Center MetroLink Entrance Gets MakeoverReturn to Blog
Today, we got a heads up on Twitter by @countondowntown that the eastbound entrance to the Convention Center MetroLink Station, next to the former St. Louis Centre building at 6th and Washington Avenue, was really coming along. See for yourself, looks great!

Will at any point nd time the underground stations at 6th and Washington and 8th and Pine get any sort of remodlin?…it would be nice so that it would look more attractive to “out of towners” and the common metro Transit rider.
Other than general cosmetic or lighting changes, I am not aware of any station remodeling projects besides Grand, but I will keep my ears open!
That really looks great. This is my favorite stop!
Station remodeling? What the hell is this person thinking? Have they been on other transit systems? The Metro stops, and especially the downtown stops are about the best I’ve ever had the pleasure to use anywhere!
Let’s Be Nice this is open conversation.

The entrance does look very nice. Hoever, I am a little disappointed that no one thought to make the lettering on the signs bigger to give a better indication that the entrance is for an eastbound train to Shiloh-Scott/Fairview Heights.
The changes to the entrance were not Metro’s initiative, but part of the MX building development. We benefited from new sidewalks, art and landscaping, but our signage remained the same.
Other than for general maintenance, the appearance on the inside of the downtown underground stations are good just as they and don’t need remodeling. The tunnel formations are awesome and unique compared to the subways I have ridden in other cities. I think maybe some of the outlying staions, particularly on the Red Line, and maybe a few in St. Clair Co., could use makeovers to their entrances.
