Cahill Train Station

  • Northern California

San Jose Diridon Station has served as the main passenger rail terminal for the City of San Jose since its construction in 1934. Designed in the Classical/Spanish Colonial style, the building is constructed of unreinforced masonry over a steel frame. The interior features several murals and stencil-painted surfaces with fine finishes throughout. The scope of this project entailed complete seismic structural upgrading along with general rehabilitation of the building and grounds. This was undertaken as part of a larger project involving railroad track redesign and the construction of a multimodal transit station at Alma Street in San Jose. ARG surveyed the building, evaluated the program, prepared existing conditions drawings and documents, and developed complete construction documents for the main terminal waiting room.
