Clark completed the DART City Place Station in 2000 for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). The station consists of two platforms interconnected at three different areas. Finishes for the 25,000 square-foot, below-grade station included utility work, architectural improvements, and installation of MEP systems.

The City Pace Station features two entrances that come together at a mezzanine which connects to the platforms below. The project team installed concrete and steel stairways and then added handicapped ramps to make the station accessible for disabled patrons. Extensive tile work was incorporated, with porcelain tile used on the walls and ceramic tile for floors. The project team also reconditioned an existing escalator and elevator in the City Place office building above, and they installed two inclined elevators, two hydraulic elevators and six escalators.

The project included an HVAC system, a state-of-the-art fire alarm and sprinkler system, specialized ticket vending machines and validators, and closed-circuit TV. Extensive utility work, including relocation of water and phone lines, also was required.
