Claremont Depot  Thirtieth Street Architects, Inc. was hired by the City of Claremont, California, to develop a multi-modal transit center at the historic Claremont Depot. The objectives for the project were to create a station for commuter rail, buses, and paratransit services; to preserve and restore the historic Depot. The 1927 Spanish Colonial  Revival styled Depot was to tie the south side of First Street with the commercial activities in the Claremont Village area by providing space in the Depot for ancillary uses including a new Transit Store. 

TSA identified important design issues which had to be addressed while fulfilling the technical requirements for a commuter rail station. The  pedestrian link between the Depot and the off site parking area must be appealing and convenient to users. Restoration, circulation, and land­scape designs would make the Depot an inviting public space and visual landmark in the downtown area.  In addition, the edge of the right-of-way near the station should create a positive visual impression of Claremont in the view from the train. The project included development of a downtown plaza and restoration of the depot to meet seismic, electrical, mechanical and ADA requirements. TSA and its Project Team scope of work included preparation of construction documents and construction observation for the entire project, plus the tenant improvements necessary for the new Transit Store.
