Client: Corpus Christi Regional Transportation Authority
Location: Corpus Christi, Texas
Gignac & Associates, in association with Sasaki and Parsons Brinckerhoff, team are providing design services for the new Corpus Christi Reginonal Transportation Authority’s Customer Service Center Complex that will be located in old uptown Corpus Christi. This is an area that has been virtually abandoned over the past 20 years. In an effort to revitalize the surrounding area and the nearby downtown district, the CC RTA purchased two full city blocks to develope a new governmental corridor in the area.
This is also an effort to stimulate other responsible commercial and residential development in the area by providing public transportation with the neighboring intermodal transfer station. Future plans include another adjacent facility designed for leasing to commercial and governmental tenants. The facility is designed to encourage pedestrian activity in the area and use of the RTA’s bus system. The facilities have a number of roof gardens and are designed to meet LEED Silver standards. The building is also oriented North-South and is penetrated to fill the spaces with natural daylight.
Gignac & Associates and Sasaki collaborated on the site planning and master-planninf for the facility and possible future expansions. This design effort included parking, streetscapes, landscaping, roof gardens, and outdoor gathering areas.
