Light-Rail Station to Serve Downtown Tempe
The Tempe, Ariz., office of Otak has been selected for final design of the new City of Tempe Transportation Center adjacent to the Central Phoenix/East Valley Light Rail Project. The transportation center will become the front door to Arizona State University's Sun Devil Stadium in downtown Tempe. The project includes a Light Rail Events Station, a 15-bay bus transit center with shelters, two acres of urban plaza, and a three-story 32,000-sf, transportation office complex. The city has set a goal of achieving LEED Silver for the project. Scheduled opening: spring 2007.
