New Mixed-Use Structure and Transit Hub
Revitalizing Downtown – Grand River Station is a joint mixed-use and transit hub developed in partnership by the City of La Crosse and private developers to increase activity and economic development in the historic downtown area.
Meeting Design Challenges – The six-story structure houses an eight-bus transfer station, passenger terminal, 15,000 square feet of retail space, 96 parking stalls, 108,804 square feet of multi-family housing, and a landscaped/green roof.
To provide the flexibility required of such a diverse space, IMEG designed the facility using post-tensioned concrete. IMEG’s engineers designed and detailed large post-tensioned transfer girders to support the parking area on the third floor, the housing areas above the parking, and the green roof. IMEG staff also provided civil engineering services for the project.
