Anderson Regional Transportation Center
Anderson Regional Transportation Center, Woburn, MA
The Center replaced the Mishewam Commuter Rail/Logan Express station with an expanded facility on 34 acres of a former industrial park, which had been one of the nation’s top ten toxic waste sites. Cleaning the area was part of the EPA’s Superfund program. The Center was named in honor of Jimmy Anderson, whose death from leukemia was described in the book, A Civil Action. Brown, Richardson + Rowe’s design focuses on the pedestrian areas and the entrance drive. Trees, benches, lighting and signs were located to increase user comfort in hot and cold weather.
