Abstract: The modern way of life is conditioned by fast transportation. This in turn requires integration of many additional contents that opens the opportunity to the passengers for quick access to their target - food, accommodation, entertainment, communication. Considering the above, the Transport hub transforms into a new type of transformative megastructure which in itself should contain all these functions and also be an attractor for the local population as well as try to help the modern city in the pursuit of constant development. The distance of the existing railway station (3.7km from the city centre) makes it hardly accessible to the population, therefore it is neglected and the rail traffic in the city of Kumanovo is minimized. On the other hand, the bus station has a good location, but the building is in poor condition, which impedes the functioning of the city and intercity bus service. A segment of the railroad from the proposed "Corridor 8" transits adjacent to the existing bus station, which opens the question of the importance of rail transport and its impact in the further development of the city. These considerations clearly indicate the need to establish an integrated transport hub, whose proposed location touches the downtown area, but is still in the zone between the city and the suburbia, which includes adjoining contents such as: retail, hospitality and culture, which will help achieve the goal of the transport hub as a starting point of development of a new city nucleus, a new point in the city.
