TOWNSCAPE, in collaboration with URS Corp, a national transportation engineering firm, served as the Task Leader for station planning. The Plan includes preparing a station plan that focuses on joint development opportunities for Downtown Denton. The downtown station will be the premier station in the system, which terminates on the east side of downtown. It will provide a stimulus for mixed use development and tie into a planned “Art Walk” to the City center, the traditional Courthouse Square and Denton’s two public universities. TOWNSCAPE subsequently developed the design theme for the rail station elements for all the system’s stations.

TOWNSCAPE provided workshops with city councils, planning commissions and staff on what constitutes TOD and how to make it successful. Detailed engineering design has begun and the system is scheduled to begin operation in early 2011.
