It's basically empty all the time.
- Bobby Tanzilo, OnMilwaukee.com Managing Editor
The Downtown Transit Center is a huge building at the intersection of East Michigan Avenue and Lincoln Memorial Parkway, but has been underused since its opening in 1992.
Originally intended to be a changeover station for buses, along with a passenger station, the chairs are empty, the escalators are switched off and the schedule monitors remain black.
But that will all change in a few months when construction begins on the Couture Center, which will be home to apartments, a hotel and several retail locations.
