Architecture in Fort Worth

 

 

Intermodal Transportation Center

9th & Jones Street - 2002

 

This new facility is designed to handle all modes of transportation serving the downtown area.  It was designed by Gideon Toal of Fort Worth and will be a stop for the Trinity Railway Express, Amtrak, city bus service, taxis, and the like.  The first commuter rail trains started service to Dallas on December 3, 2001; however, the building was not completed until January 2002.  The center will likely be a catalyst for future development in the southeast sector of downtown.  The design features a 90' clock tower that will serve as the terminus to the 9th Street axis. Several light fixtures from the old Fort Worth Public Library at 9th & Throckmorton adorn the entryway and second floor of the facility.
