Palmdale to Burbank High-Speed Rail Station Area Design and Planning

PlaceWorks led the planning and design of stations, helped develop a community integration strategy, and provided technical support for environmental analyses for this segment of the California High Speed Rail Project. Our team established the layout of station platforms, facilities, passenger circulation, parking, access, and intermodal circulation. We worked with the public outreach and environmental teams on ways to integrate the project—physically, economically, socially/culturally, and politically—and we produced the land use, environmental justice, and community impact analyses of the environmental documents. We also provided direction to ensure that local plans under a CHSRA grant conformed to state objectives and requirements, and we integrated their input into cohesive, design-level final plans.
