Transbay taps Pelli Clarke Pelli

Posted on May 16, 2008

The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPA) Board of Directors unanimously approved a professional services agreement with Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects to design the new Transbay Transit Center in downtown San Francisco.


The contract’s scope includes the complete design of the Transit Center building and bus ramps connecting to the Bay Bridge, which will be constructed in two phases. The first phase includes the new center, the bus ramps connecting the building to the west approach of the Bay Bridge and bus storage facilities. The second phase of the project includes the construction of the below-grade train platform and mezzanine levels of the Center. The contract value is $105 million.


The new Transbay Transit Center at First and Mission streets will serve as a Grand Central of the West and centralize the region’s transportation network by accommodating nine transportation systems under one roof, including: AC Transit, Caltrain, MUNI, Golden Gate Transit, SamTrans, Greyhound, BART, WestCAT and future California High-Speed Rail. The area surrounding the Transit Center will be redeveloped to include housing, retail and an adjacent tower poised to redefine the City’s skyline.
