Courthouse is the most overbuilt modern transit station I can think of. It is one of the three underground stations on the silver line where it operates under trolley wire and has the required two side platforms (the buses only have right-side doors). Above the platforms in this modern station with silver walls and indirect lighting is a wide mezzanine, access to this mezzanine from each platform is via an up escalator/staircase to High Exit Turnstiles at the eastern end and an escalator/staircase and elevator at the western end. This means there is no free crossover. The station mezzanine leads out at the western end to two up escalator/staircase and separate elevators to eitherside of Seaport Blvd in the middle of vacant and parking lots, with just some buildings around. The stop was designed to spur redevelopment but not much has yet.
