The city of Cincinnati has approved the final design of the shelters that will be built at Streetcar stations.

The shelters were designed by Cincinnati-based DNK Architects. The city chose the design because of their clean, simple and modular approach. The shelters are also U.S. Department of Transportation ‘Buy America' compliant, which means that all materials used to build the shelter will be American-made.

"We designed the station structures to call to mind what the Streetcar will bring to Cincinnati - a public transportation system that everyone can use to connect to neighborhoods," said David Kirk, founder and principle architect, DNK Architects, and lead architect for the Streetcar station design.  "We want people to look at the stations and see how easy, safe, and comfortable it is to explore all that Cincinnati has to offer."

The city is continuing to negotiate with utility companies to build the streetcar. The first phase of the streetcar will connect The Banks to Findlay Market.
