HOK, PB to design Calif. intermodal center

Posted on July 14, 2009

[IMAGE]anaheim.jpg[/IMAGE]The Los Angeles office of HOK, a global architecture design firm, and Parsons Brinckerhoff (PB), a global infrastructure strategic consulting, engineering and program/construction management organization, announced its combined team was selected by the Anaheim City Council and Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) to design phase one of the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC). The 66,000-square-foot structure features a 180-foot archway offering expansive skyline views and will stand out as a landmark throughout the region.

The intermodal transportation hub is a sustainable transportation facility linking commuter and regional rail service as well as intercity bus, taxi and local transit. Future phases will expand the center to accommodate California high-speed rail to destinations such as San Francisco and Sacramento and serve as the terminus for the super-speed train between Las Vegas and Southern California.

The new transportation hub is scheduled to break ground in 2010 and be completed by mid-2013. Phase one is valued at approximately $180 million and will consist of the transportation center and supporting facilities, rail tracks and platforms, parking, public art and street improvements.

ARTIC will accommodate passenger arrivals, departures and transfers, with supporting retail, restaurants and passenger services within the structure. It will also provide easy transfer and connectivity between area entertainment destinations and sports venues including the Anaheim Convention Center, Angel Stadium, Disneyland and Honda Center.
