On Monday, the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) was presented with a 2009 Pacific Coast Builders Conference Gold Nugget award for architectural excellence for the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) plans.
The Pacific Coast Builders Conference recently held its 46th annual Gold Nugget Awards in San Francisco, to honor architects and planners for their cutting-edge and creative design of civic, commercial and private structures.
The panel of nine judges praised the innovative design and location of ARTIC and awarded it the Outstanding On-The-Boards Site Plan.
The state-of-the-art facility will serve as a transportation hub designed to accommodate current commuter-rail service and future high-speed rail. ARTIC is situated at major freeways and a short walk from Angel Stadium of Anaheim and Honda Center. Construction on the 16-acre site, owned by OCTA and Anaheim, is expected to begin in 2011.
