Anaheim's New Entrance
When I stepped off the train from my most recent visit to Anaheim, I was totally confused. Where the heck was I? Somebody changed the station on me! Opening in December 2014, this new facility is extremely impressive, and a far cry from the dump that still stands a few blocks away.
Certified LEED platinum, the ARTIC (Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center) is even more impressive at night.
Inside, there are ticket counters as well as retail space and restaurants. At the time of my visit, it looked like they were still attempting to fill the retail space.
Kudos to HOK and Parsons Brinckerhoff for the impressive architecture. I was having such a good time taking photos I didn't even really mind that my train was over an hour late!
This station should do more than its share to poise Anaheim for a future of growth.
