METRO Downtown Transit Center and Administration Office Building is a 400,000 square-foot, 14-story facility. Metropolitan Transit Authority Administration Building houses METRO’s administrative offices, and a 3,500 sf data center, and also serves as a bus transit center. The new home for METRO also includes a nine-bay, covered bus transit center with a vaulted, standing seam metal roof and curved metal skylights. METRO customers may change from bus transportation to light rail by using the first-floor transit center portion of the building.
HMA designed the building management and control system for the building.
