A familiar sight to commuters at Stamford's train station, is set to be transformed.

Thursday, the Connecticut Department of Transportation announced plans for the parking garage. 

The DOT's calling it the Transit-Oriented Development project.  It not only includes two new parking garages, but also a hotel, residential units, office and retail space.

The developments will be built where the old garage stands now and within a quarter mile of the station. 

But the chairman of the Metro-North Rail Commuter Council says the plans may raise some concerns for commuters.

However the principal of the developer for the project says parking for commuters will be separate. 

The plan calls for 300 more commuter spaces than there are now.  The old garages will remain during construction, which is projected to be completed within three years.  The DOT says construction will begin in spring 2014.
