Size & Type of Project – New Transit Center in Lower Manhattan
This new transit center is a $1.4 Billion project that includes pedestrian linkages of six existing stations including new underground connecting tunnels, an above grade transit center at the intersection of Broadway and Fulton Street, a new nine story office building and restoration of the historic Corbin building, which was constructed in 1888 and purported to be the tallest building in New York City at that time. Construction of this transit center is considered to be central to the revitalization of Lower Manhattan after the 9/11 attack. 85% of the population commuting to or visiting this part of the city utilize mass transportation. One of the new linkages connects to the World Trade Center site.
The new transit center will be a glass clad structure featuring a central oculus providing a focal point for travelers. This project is partially funded by the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 with construction is proceeding in a phased manner.
