Future development[edit]

The Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (ARTIC) is a transportation hub that is under construction at 33°48′12″N 117°52′40″W / 33.803293°N 117.877811°W / 33.803293; -117.877811 (Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center (proposed)) on a 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2) plot of land owned by the City of Anaheim in the vicinity of where the station is now located. A ground breaking ceremony for the estimated $184.2 million facility took place in September 2012; it should be opened to the public by 2014.[2] It will serve to connect Orange County's bus network, the Southern California Metrolink rail system, and the planned California High-Speed Rail line in the city's Platinum Triangle.[3][4] In addition, the site has been mentioned as a possible location for the California High-Speed Rail Anaheim station as well as being the southern terminus for the planned California-Nevada Interstate Maglev.[5]

The proposed structure will be 67,000 square feet (6,200 m2), reinforced by huge white steel beams..[4] The contract for construction has been awarded to Clark Construction Group - California, LP. Construction started in September 2012 and is scheduled to be completed late 2014.

Leading up to the selection of a general contractor, the team of PB/HOK completed design development in May 2012. California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) clearance was completed in October 2010 and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) clearance was completed in 2012.
