OCTA bus maintenance facility

Situated on a wide boulevard and located among business parks, this 22-acre bus maintenance facility is easily accessible from the San Diego Freeway. The site is relatively flat with Edison easement fronting the southern part of the site. A 10-foot high concrete wall visually screens the site. The planting design:

  • Creates an attractive frontage along MacArthur Boulevard and the Edison easement with partial screening of the wall
  • Defines the entries for the buses and employees
  • Emphasizes the main interior drive and the administration building
  • Creates inviting outdoor garden spaces for the employees

Drought tolerant and low maintenance plants were selected to reinforce OCTA’s philosophy. Patterns, colors, and texture were used to emphasize the design concept and the irrigation system was designed to complement the planting and to conserve water.
