Old popular nightclub to become a VIA service facility

The old nightclub Graham Central Station right off of Fredericksburg Road will be a brand new service facility that services riders with disabilities.

Board members of VIA unanimously voted on Tuesday to get a go ahead on the $33 million facility.

The facility will be a headquarters for VIAtrans, which is the transit organization that services people with disabilities.

Back in 2017, VIA had purchased the 100,000 square-foot building Graham Central Station as well as another 10,000 square-foot building with plans to renovate the building into a para transit facility on the 11 acre property.

The new building contains offices, lockers, lunch rooms, washing and fueling stations as well as a room for parts and a warehouse.

Construction is to be completed next August with a slated opening date the following October.
