A team led by Parsons Brinckerhoff and HOK bested four other high-profile groups to design a $180-million regional intermodal transportation center in Anaheim, Calif. The project is the first of what could be a three-phased effort for expanded regional rail service and a possible high-speed line to Las Vegas. The Anaheim City Council selected the team on May 26 for the $24.3-million design contract over teams led by RMJM, linked with Gehry Partners and AECOM; Parsons Corp. and Skidmore, Owings and Merrill; Pelli Clarke Pelli Architect and AAI Architects Inc.; and Foster + Partners and Gruen Associates. Anaheim Public Works Director Natalie Meeks says construction is set to start in late 2010 and be completed in 2013.
