West Palm Beach Intermodal Transit Facility
Gentile Glas Holloway O’Mahoney & Associates, Inc. was authorized to provide planning and design services to Palm Beach County Facilities Development & Operations Department for the proposed West Palm Beach Intermodal Transfer Facility located within the City of West Palm Beach. The 6.5 acre site is strategically located immediately west of an existing Tri-Rail station, which serves as a primary commuter rail facility for downtown West Palm Beach. The Facility accomplishes multi-modal transit throughout West Palm Beach, central Palm Beach County and beyond. 2GHO provided a variety of services including but not limited to: planning services, site plan and landscape architecture design along with graphic design that included the proposed Art in Public Places feature. The landscaping is striking and formal as appropriate in a downtown location and as a gateway into the city for those arriving by bus or train. The landscape defines the public space, the circulation for vehicles and for the pedestrian with pedestrian shelters as accents serving as relief from the hot Florida sun or the late afternoon thunderstorms.
