Complex and ornate station finishes that can be justified
Boston CourtHouse Station, Boston MA


09 May 2021

The station was intended as the centerpiece of the Silver Line and a key feature of Boston's Innovation district, with a visual impact significantly different from other stations in the MBTA system. It includes "some of the most complex and ornate station finishes installed in any MBTA transportation facility to date" which cost $30 million to complete. The lobby includes a polished stone floor and distinctive purple overhead lighting fixtures, while both the platforms have brushed steel finishes on support columns and walls. The station was turned into an "idea lab" nightclub and conference center for Boston Idea Week, which included several other MBTA-centered events.
