With financial support from the CHSRA, researchers at UC Berkeley’s Global Metropolitan Studies have developed design concepts for transit-oriented development (TOD) around highspeed rail stations in cities in the Central Valley. In this report, we present a detailed analysis of the proposed High Speed Rail (HSR) station area in downtown Fresno, and propose illustrative urban design concepts meant to increase density and create a pedestrian and transit friendly environment in the vicinity of the station. The proposed urban design strategies address issues ranging in scale from regional growth and transportation patterns to detailed street and building design concepts, promoting multimodal transportation and sustainable building design.
