ZGF led the programming, design and rehabilitation of the 66,000 SF historic train station. Designed by Bliss & Fayville in the Mediterranean Renaissance Revival style and built in 1926 the station serves as a portal to Sacramento and the first and most enduring building of the Sacramento Intermodal Transportation network. Working with a historic preservationist, ZGF restored the original fabric including the façade, roof, masonry, and decorative treatments. Interior enhancements improve the grand waiting room complete with restored walls, ceiling, and the historic John A. MacQuarrie mural depicting the celebration of the groundbreaking of the First Transcontinental Railroad. ZGF analyzed the existing flow of Amtrak passengers and operations and subsequently relocated the ticket counter to the opposite side of the station and added a new baggage claim and storage building behind the station to optimize operational flow and customer experience. New signage and separation of pedestrian, vehicle and back-of-house activities supplement wayfinding. The station will be LEED Platinum®.
