Awarded the Hillsborough County Planning Commission Award of Merit, Southern Transportation Plaza is Tampa's first multi-use transit stop located in the center of downtown. Surrounded on all sides by such popular venues as the Tampa Convention Center, the Marriott Waterside Hotel, and the St. Pete Times Forum, this plaza required very accessible, multi-modal connections, functional lighting, and vandal resistant seating. Radiating from a central glass shelter are large planters with shade trees, flowering shrubs, and hardy groundcovers.

Genesis worked with the design team to layout the urban plaza and provide for future development to the north. The final design provides areas for vendor carts, shaded gathering spaces, and a large amount of seating along the planter walls. Since the rail system was already in place, construction coordination was critical. Genesis was involved from conceptual design through construction phase services for HARTline's TECO line streetcar transit station.
