Transbay Transit Center Tour

Hamilton + Aitken staff were able to get a backstage tour of the Transbay Transit Center, currently under construction. Tour-goers were impressed by the structural design as well as the geothermal system.  Designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, the new 5-story Transit Center features a Caltrain and California High Speed Rail terminal at the bottom, a shopping center level, a concourse level, a bus terminal level, and a 5.4 acre park on the roof.  According to the guide, Ned Kahn’s water jets at the park will correspond to the level of activity on the bus deck, so perhaps you will be able to tell whether your bus has arrived by the height of the water jet.
