This station is located among historic buildings dating back to the period between approximately 1880 and 1920-a time of tremendous growth for the City of Houston. The station's proximity to the natural setting of Allen's Landing and Buffalo Bayou is referenced by serpentine guardrails, high-lighted by a top rail in the form of a water vine. The vines extend to and appear to climb up the columns. The platform materials and design draw on details of adjacent historic buildings, featuring rosette insets in contrasting colors and patterns. Overall, the colors of the materials used in the station, its painted structure, and the glass canopy were designed to make the station a cool and calming oasis at the center of the busy Main Street corridor.
