The MTS/James R. Mills Building Project provides a regional transportation center for downtown San Diego, where San Diego's three light rail transit (trolley) lines and several major transit bus lines converge. The 10-story facility spans the trolley tracks at the Imperial & 12th Street Transfer Station. The station is a major passenger transfer point for San Diego's expanding trolley system, linking the South and East trolley lines and the downtown Bayside Line. The MTS/James R. Mills Building Project also includes 6,500 square feet of retail space on the ground floor. The facility was developed through a public/private partnership between Starboard Development Corporation and the San Diego Regional Building Authority. The use of fast track, private sector design-build techniques to construct and fully furnish this turnkey project allowed occupancy just 14 months after ground breaking.
