High Speed Rail
Texas Central was established to undertake a new initiative for the state of Texas. Taking a giant leap towards innovation, they have been tasked with the development of a high-speed passenger rail line, connecting Dallas and Houston with an intermediate stop in Brazos Valley.
Our team is partnering with Texas Central to create a vision for this new model. We began the preliminary station programs and test fits in 2017, creatively positioning our clients for stakeholder buy-in. From there, our team will be developing the conceptual design for the Dallas, Brazos Valley, and Houston station locations. Together, we are pushing the boundaries of design with aggressive goals and transcendent thinking.
What does this project mean? The beginning of a new era for transportation across North America.
