Located at the site of the historic Market Street Depot, San Jose’s first main train station, the Orange Lanterns under the Coleman Avenue overcrossing create a sense of passage along Bassett Avenue. The public art project site, adjacent to a new neighborhood park, sits where the lawn of the Depot once held palm and orange trees. These orange trees inspire the two Orange Lantern beacons. The lanterns are scaled to the infrastructure and provide a community landmark, promoting neighborhood identity and wayfinding.
