IN PROGRESS: VIA 5-Points

Every once in awhile, an architectural project comes along that doesn't predominantly involve a new building. This would be the case with our latest project with VIA Metropolitan Transit, called VIA 5-Points Bus Stop. Located at the industrial intersection of Fredericksburg Road and La Harpe is what will ultimately become a pedestrian friendly, sustainably landscaped transit stop for the VIA bus system. The new park-like setting will give bus travelers and pedestrians just passing through, a more serene experience than your typical street corner bus stop. Highlights of the project include drought-tolerant lush landscaping, permeable walking surfaces with multiple seating areas, colorful shade structures and more prominent signage for visitors. The project is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2015.
