Frankford Transportation Center
SEPTA engaged the joint venture of Jacobs and Parsons Brinckerhoff with TranSystems as architect and planner, to prepare designs for a new intermodal terminal facility and parking garage. TranSystems served as the building design team leader, terminal planner, architect and preservation planner. The design team’s most considerable challenge was to create an attractive, efficient, and comfortable terminal complex that would significantly increase ridership. The new terminal replaced an antiquated facility. It opened the streetscape by relocating the original elevated structure and included a new 1,000-space parking garage. The design was selected for a Merit Award by the American Institute of Architects of Philadelphia.
