Penn Station Revamp

Governor Cuomo unveils plans for Penn Station's massive revamp


Quote:
Brace yourselves, New Yorkers: a new Penn Station is officially coming—for real this time. Today, Governor Andrew Cuomo unveiled plans for the forthcoming Pennsylvania Station-Farley Complex, along with announcing the developers and builders who will collaborate on the project. The plans call for a brand new, 255,000-square-foot train hall, which will accommodate both Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road passengers, that’s scheduled to be completed by the end of 2020. (Yes, you read that date right.)

...Unsurprisingly, the partnership is made up of some of the real estate business's biggest names: Related Companies, Vornado Realty, and Skanska. Those three companies will work together, using the designs proposed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, to bring the revamped Penn Station to life.






Three Major Takeaways:

1. The James A. Farley Post Office building has been "reimagined from the original plan," which had called for the building to hold only Amtrak. Now, it will measure 250,000 square feet (larger than Grand Central Terminal), and will be known as the Moynihan Train Hall. It will hold Amtrak and the LIRR, along with 700,000 square feet of retail and office space. The design is similar to the renderings, created by SOM, that were revealed in January, with a dramatic glass skylight (meant to reference McKim, Mead & White's old Penn Station) arching over the concourse.

2. The LIRR concourses that currently sit within Penn Station will be redeveloped, and headed up by the MTA. This will include "nearly tripling the width of the 33rd Street Corridor, which is among the busiest sections of Penn Station and stretches along the station’s lower level from Seventh to Eighth Avenue." An RFP will be issued for this work today, and a contractor may be chosen before the end of the year.

3. Both subway stations that service Penn Station—the A/C/E at Eighth Avenue and the 1/2/3 at Seventh Avenue—will be completely redone in keeping with the MTA’s plans, announced earlier this year, to upgrade 31 stations throughout the entire system.























LIRR Concourse Renderings:

The lobby render of 111 57th St I posted on the last page is apparently old. Here is the current render:

121 East 22nd Street to be OMA's First NYC Residential Project
Quote:
The Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) has released renderings for what will soon become the firm's first residential project to date in New York City. Known for now as 121 East 22nd Street, the Office for Metropolitan Architecture- and SLCE Architects-designed 133-unit condo tower will be built by the Toll Brothers, and include two interconnected towers, standing at 18 and 13 storeys respectively, with frontages along both 22nd and 23rd Streets.

The Steinway Tower (111 57th St) is going to be a blast!

A Neo Art Deco masterpiece coming along, so excited to see this grow. It's incredibly tall and skinny, but proportionally makes up for it with setbacks, fabulous materials and details.

Oh, look! Is that turquoise on the fifth image? It seems so. I'm fascinated by every aspect of these buildings.

All relevant flights can easily be divided among JFK and EWR. Of course, Cuomo wants his pet projects instead of proper First World infrastructure.
JFK would likely have to be expanded to accommodate those extra flights and where are they going to get the space to build more runways with current environmental restrictions? That's a lot of extra movements per year and EWR is totally full in terms of flights.
I used to want LGA removed but I realized that that wasn't feasible because you can't expand the other airports at all. JFK still has Jamaica Bay and nobody will touch that.


As for the bus terminal, I like Achillier best. The cheapest looking design and most likely to be picked in my opinion (due to cost, looks like a basic modern no-frills bus terminal) is the Arcadis one. I have the feeling that a highly elaborate bus terminal will not be selected. It is a bus terminal after all.

Penn station- farley building looks very good. Amtrak passengers at least won't need to go into the old station any more, so it's a better impression of NYC for those passengers. I am disappointed with the the improvements to the old station however, nothing special at all. MSG needs to go eventually. Also, what improvements for NJ transit commuters? The rest of the station is going to remain an eyesore if this is all they are doing.

The new plaza at Penn West will be a good thing for NY

Can you please edit your post to remove the pictures you quoted? No need to quote all of them.

To answer your question, No. the Path station on 6th Ave is two long avenues away from the Farley Post Office on 8th Ave

It doesn't really solve the serious problems with Penn Station, though, which mainly fall into not enough trans-Hudson capacity, running it as a terminal despite being designed as a through station, not enough access to the platforms from the concourse, narrow platforms that cause serious congestion and inconsistent track assignments resulting in last-minute rushes. It's just less ugly.

Moving Amtrak from Penn station has to help alleviate some congestion.
Widening the new LIRR concourse at 33rd Street to three-times its current 25 feet (which will also have higher ceilings) has to alleviate some congestion
Having LIRR platform access from Moynihan has to alleviate some congestion
Having some LIRR go to Grand Central with East Side Access has to alleviate some congestion


Once again the negative nancies have come out the woodwork to complain about every positive incremental change that isn't a complete overhaul. A complete redesign of Penn is coming, hold your horses. In the meantime, these projects do help some (especially for a "measly" $1.6 billion)

For the use of materials and reinterpretation of Deco features, I can't call it just "Art Deco". It's neither just "postmodern" for me. But let us see what's your suggestion for this style.

Well, sometimes the future brings a better terminology. I am far from competent to coin the right term, remember I'm just an architecture lover.
However most of the time, when a complete revival happens it is usually called Neo, or New. Using the term Neo Art Deco for the Fitzroy seems correct for me. The proportions and materials suggest a complete revival of the style.
The Steinway tower looks delightful, the dark blue, reflective glass gives a contemporary - post 2000 year charm to the building, no matter if you want to admit that, or not.
