Grand is a St. Louis MetroLink station in St. Louis, Missouri. The station consists of a single island platform situated beneath the Grand Boulevard viaduct. Grand is accessible by two elevators and sets of stairs that provide access to both northbound and southbound Grand Boulevard and a ramp on Scott Avenue. The station was renovated beginning in 2011, and opened in late 2012.
The station is near Saint Louis University and Grand Center. At the north end of the viaduct there is a unique, saucer-roofed concrete building that formerly housed a Del Taco restaurant, also a gas station with a convenience store, at the south there are Captain D's and Rally's locations. The saucer-roofed building has been renovated and split into two sections. It houses a Starbucks coffeehouse and a Chipotle Mexican Grill for commuters and the nearby campus.
In March 2011, the station was temporarily closed to permit the demolition of the Grand Boulevard viaduct and the station's original 1993 elevator towers and stairs. A temporary station was employed while the bridge was replaced during an 18-24 month construction project. The project included the construction of a new MetroLink station, as well. The new expanded and improved station and transfer center on Scott Avenue underneath the completed viaduct opened on August 20, 2012.
