Final plans to transform Birmingham's rundown Digbeth Coach Station have been submitted to the city council.
Owner National Express wants to redevelop the coach station at a cost of £15m.
Under the plans, the depot will close on 12 November and reopen in 2009. A temporary coach station will operate from the other side of Digbeth.
The new building will have a curved wall and be wrapped in copper cladding, giving it a "shimmering" appearance.
Other facilities will include a temperature-controlled waiting area, an enclosed concourse with passenger information displays, an information centre, an open-plan cafe and new toilets.
A new shopping centre will also be built , as well as offices, a short-stay car park and drop-off zone, taxi ranks and 16 coach bays, two more than are currently available.
Although the new coach station will be in the same location, coaches will use a new entrance in Bradford Street.
The rundown current station will be demolished
Paul Bunting, chief executive of National Express, said: "A brand new modern coach station will greatly enhance people's experience of coach travel in Birmingham and around the UK.
"We are totally committed to delivering this project, which will assist with the regeneration of Digbeth, the Eastside and the Irish Quarter and provide a landmark gateway into the city centre."
The new station has been designed by SBS Architects.
People can view the new plans at the coach station on 2 and 3 November.
