cox graae + spack architects designed a new multi-modal transportation center in the heart of the Athens, GA historic district. The Athens/Clarke County Government selected cg+s to design the two-story facility to expand the county’s transit services connecting the downtown retail core and the University of Georgia campus to a former industrial warehouse district. The center is designed to blend with the adjacent historic context. The facility includes a bus transfer facility, bus shelter and a platform for future commuter rail. An existing 600-car parking garage with mixed retail space is connected via a pedestrian access bridge, which was designed by cg+s in an earlier phase.
