It’s Official, the Pelli Clarke Pelli/Hines team have won the Transbay Terminal and Tower design competition.
But even as they selected the Hines-Pelli team over two rivals, leaders of the Transbay Joint Powers Authority stressed that the proposal now on the table is a starting point, not a fait accompli.
