Arup’s state-of-the art design provides for a vibrant new mix of residential and commercial uses in the heart of downtown San Francisco. It spans four city blocks and provides intercity, regional, and commuter bus services for five major transit providers at the ground and bus deck levels.
Underground, the new transit center will have three 1,300-foot long train platforms, providing four terminal tracks for the new High Speed Rail service from Southern California and two tracks for the Caltrain commuter rail service.
Arup's San Francisco office began work on concept validation in June 2008 and will provide complete engineering design, as well as bid phase and construction administration services though project completion in the spring of 2017.
