North Temple Transfer Station

I had heard tales of a North Temple Transfer Station between Trax and FrontRunner, but no official confirmation. You can read about it in the Deseret News here or watch the video here. I won't call the station pretty, (it's very utilitarian) but it's not hideous either. It will be nice to have alternative access/egress from the viaduct--viaducts are never comfortable walking environments because it's impossible to detour. It would be really nice if the FrontRunner station on the ground level also connected to the local street grid. I didn't see any ticket vending machines or seating in the video, but that may be a lack in the animation, rather than a lack in planning.
