It features a 30,000-sq. ft. ground level that accommodates local bus traffic, bus berths as well as taxi and limousine traffic.
The structural system consists of prestressed precast concrete components with architectural pre-cast concrete elements on the exterior façade. Patron vehicular access is accommodated by a structurally supported cast-in-place concrete ramp from the street to the second story parking level.
