For as long as I've lived in Southern California, my friends and I have complained about the lack of a good public transportation system. But things could be looking up! Architects HOK Los Angeles and Parsons Brinkerhoff recently unveiled the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC).
Designed to rival other iconic train stations, the 66,000 sq ft structure will feature a 180 ft archway with views of the surrounding city. In addition to offering increased accessibility to green transportation, the station will be shooting to achieve LEED Platinum certification, the highest possible certification with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
The transit center will serve as a hub for commuter trains and two new high speed rail lines that will help commuters, fans, residents and tourists move seamlessly between Southern California and beyond. Now, travelers from near and faraway lands will have fast and convenient access to popular destinations like the Anaheim Convention Center, Angel Stadium, Disneyland and the Honda Center. Construction is due to start in 2010, with completion set for mid-2013.
