The Rail Yard PUD
The Rail Yard Development
The City of Grayson was looking for a down town revitalization to create a sense of community. Zanardo Architects, PC, was chosen to do the master planning and architecture for a turn of the century themed development in down town Grayson based on the rail way that once went through the town. The development includes retail, restaurant, and live-work residences which encourage a walking community.
The center and focal point of the development is a recreation of that turn of the original train station which houses 2 restaurants. Brick detailing enhances the feel of a building 100 years old.
