FWIW that Crain's NY photo is probably a couple of months old. The actual subway stop that is opening to revenue service in ~June 2014 is to the left (north) of the photo.

The tail tracks (south of the new station) for the #7 extension run under the photographer' vantage point, which is the 11th Ave viaduct.

The photo below is of the headhouse 12/11/2013. Photo is looking SW from 34th St. with a vent building for this site behind it.

MTACC (Capital Construction) photographed this same site in March 2012, looking west this time. The current headhouse sits on top of the opening in the deck near the center bottom of this photo. 11th Ave is the road across the photo near the top. The vent building in the 12/11 photo rose from the deeper pit at 11th Ave & 33rd st.:

Master Lessee Assigned for Fulton Center
December 18th, 2013



Fulton St. subway station

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has announced that it intends to designate the mall developer/operator Westfield as the master lessee for substantial portions of the Fulton Center, the new transit hub and retail destination nearing completion in Lower Manhattan.

The master lease will encompass the majority of the non-station areas of the Fulton center complex, most prominently, the new glass and steel Fulton Building at the southeast corner of Broadway and Fulton Street; the historic Corbin Building at the northeast corner of Broadway and John Street; the Dey Street Headhouse at the southwest corner of Broadway and Dey Street; and the corridor under Dey Street that will connect to the World Trade Center in the future. The master lease will encompass approximately 180,000 square feet of space, including approximately 63,000 square feet of commercial space (roughly one-third office and two-thirds retail), some 60,000 square feet of public circulation areas and 57,000 square feet of mechanical and other “back-of-house” space. The initial term of the Westfield lease will activate when the Fulton Building’s public circulation areas open, scheduled for June 2014.

“This master lease structure will unite risk and reward in a single, highly qualified and experienced private sector operator, while relieving the MTA of ongoing capital and operating costs and expenses and generating revenue for our operating budgets,” said MTA Chairman and CEO Thomas F. Prendergast. “We are confident that Westfield will be motivated to maximize the revenues from the facility while maintaining in accordance with standards befitting the substantial investment the public has made in creating this wonderful new landmark.”

As master lessee, Westfield will be responsible for subletting the commercial space in the facility and selling space on its extensive network of digital advertising displays. With limited exceptions, it will also be responsible, at its own cost and risk, for cleaning, operating and maintaining the entire leased premises and making required repairs throughout the lease term. The MTA will participate in the revenues Westfield generates at the facility, in amounts that will depend on Westfield’s operating results.

MTA New York City Transit will still operate and maintain the Fulton Center’s various subway platforms, the A, E Mezzanine (except for the digital signage there), and a small number of rooms within the Fulton Building, Dey Street Headhouse and R Line Underpass that are to be used exclusively by NYC Transit for operational purposes. NYC Transit will also continue to maintain and operate its own signage, subway gates and turnstiles and MetroCard vending machines in the Master Lease premises, as well as the facility’s fire/life safety and public address equipment and security cameras.

The initial term of the Master Lease will begin when the Fulton Building’s public circulation areas open to the public, scheduled for June 2014, and end 20 years after the earlier of the second anniversary of such opening or the date on which at least 80% of the commercial space is occupied by Westfield’s subtenants. Westfield will have options to extend the term of the Master Lease for two successive periods of 10 years each.

The MTA selected Westfield pursuant to a competitive request for proposals process. Westfield has separately entered into a lease with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, pursuant to which Westfield will operate the retail space at the World Trade Center, scheduled to open in 2015.

“Westfield has great confidence in and commitment to downtown New York City as a world class destination,” said Greg Miles, U.S. Chief Operating Officer of Westfield. “We are pleased to be part of MTA’s new flagship Fulton Center, and look forward to introducing an exciting retail offer for commuters and visitors alike.”

“This agreement will empower Westfield to generate revenues for us that will go right back into the system while allowing MTA New York City Transit to focus its efforts on providing seamless service for the approximately 300,000 people who will pass through the Fulton Center every day, said MTA New York City Transit President Carmen Bianco. “It’s a win-win for all parties involved, most notably, our customers.”

“Bringing the Master Lessee on-board brings us that much closer to making the Fulton Center a reality, which will aid in the renaissance of Lower Manhattan. We look forward to opening what is sure to become New York City’s next landmark destination in June 2014,” said Michael Horodniceanu, President of MTA Capital Construction.

When completed next June, the $1.4 billion Fulton Center will fully integrate five subway stations serving nine different lines. The Fulton Center will also improve connectivity to the E and 1 lines once the construction at the WTC hub has been completed. Several of the Fulton Center’s customer benefits are already available to the riding public including new high-profile entrances at 135 William Street and the Dey Street Headhouse at the corner of Broadway and Dey Street. Upon its completion, the Fulton Center will have 19 elevators and 10 escalators and will be fully ADA compliant.

Fulton Center also includes the Sky-Reflector-Net, an integrated artwork, an artist, architect, engineer collaboration that culminated in a soaring light-filled atrium, which promises to be a destination for New Yorkers and visitors for years to come. MTA Arts for Transit commissioned James Carpenter Design Associates to collaborate with Grimshaw Architects and Arup, to provide a strong visual identity and create a welcoming space where sunlight helps to orient travelers and to assist them in finding their way through the complex.

Arts for Transit participated in the project to create an environment and an impact that is the best a city can provide its people, one that becomes part of New Yorkers’ memories. The main entry spaces were built anew and the art, architecture and engineering were able to progress together, fully integrated into the overall design.

For the Center’s main space, the designers created a metaphor for the celestial heaven and the powerful influence of its changing continuum of light on our sense of time: day is transformed into night, months into season, and seasons into years. The team refined both the architectural volume of the main space and developed an artwork contrasting qualities of light.

The geometry of the support structure and the faceted surface of perforated aluminum panels are lightweight, reflective and ever-changing. The result is a beautiful, animated surface that follows travelers as they move through the station. The configuration of the panels alters along with lighting conditions; their surfaces treated in such a way that even on a cloudy day the interior of the space feels luminous.

When the T line gets up and running after Phase 3 of the Second Avenue subway, will it be using the same tunnels as the Q line from 125th to 72nd?

I read somewhere that the South Ferry station won't reopen until 2016. This station is gonna be closed longer than it's been open.

As for the Second Avenue subway. Were there ever plans to have Downtown and Uptown express lanes in the tunnels? It seems smart to plan ahead and have express lines in this route.

Bloomberg to take ‘first ride’ on 7 train extension
Quote:
Mayor Michael Bloomberg will take a celebratory ride Friday on the 7 train subway extension, a project he championed.

Bloomberg pushed for the city to fund the more than $2 billion project, which extends the 7 line from Times Square to 34th Street and 11th Avenue.

The ceremonial ride will take place at noon, with Bloomberg joining other officials on a special five-car train.

The project was part of Bloomberg’s efforts to develop Manhattan’s West Side.

“They’ll run a train, if I have to push it myself,” Bloomberg reportedly said about the extension in February.

The extension is scheduled to be completed next summer.
Hopefully we'll get some station pictures!!

Mayor Bloomberg, MTA Officials and Local Leaders Take First Ride on 7 Subway Train Extension
December 20, 2013



Project is the First Subway Extension Funded by the City in More Than 60 Years

Connecting New Yorkers and Visitors to 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue, Extension Will Build on the Enormous Progress Occurring on Manhattan’s Far West Side

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, MTA officials and other local leaders today took the first ride on the extension of the 7 Subway line, terminating at the new subway station located at 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue in Manhattan. The 7 Subway Extension is the first extension funded by the City in more than 60 years, and will provide New Yorkers and visitors with a link to Manhattan’s Far West Side, building on the area’s enormous progress in recent years. The last extension financed by the City opened in December of 1950, when the Queens Boulevard line was extended to Jamaica-179th Street. This new extension demonstrates the commitment by the Bloomberg Administration to invest in infrastructure projects that will ensure New York City continues to be a leading global city in the future. The $2.4 billion project is scheduled to be completed in the summer 2014.

“Today’s historic ride is yet another symbol of how New York City has become a place where big projects can get done,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “This project is the linchpin of an ambitious transit-oriented, mixed-use development that is already transforming Manhattan’s Far West Side, and it demonstrates our Administration’s commitment over the past 12 years to invest in infrastructure that will allow our city to grow for generations to come.”

“Today, the Far West Side is not so far away anymore. The subways are our bloodlines - they literally grow the city – which is why we made the extension of the 7 line into the once-desolate far west side the heart of the Group of 35 report in 2001,” said Senator Charles Schumer. “We knew that if we built it – they would come. And ‘they’ means jobs, jobs, jobs, and an expanded tax base for the city, and a gleaming new mixed-use neighborhood where once there was only emptiness and promise. With the completion of the 7 line extension, it’s full speed ahead for development and economic growth on the far side of Manhattan. A special and heartfelt congratulations to Mayor Bloomberg and Speaker Quinn for leading the rezoning effort and for completing the first City-paid for subway in many generations. It is a singular achievement that will pay untold dividends, and a grateful city thanks you for your vision and fortitude in making this vision a reality.”

“When we complete construction on this project next summer, the West Side will be connected to the rest of this vibrant city and will be just a train ride away,” said Dr. Michael Horodniceanu, President of MTA Capital Construction.

As part of the redevelopment of Hudson Yards, a 45-block area on Manhattan’s Far West Side, the City of New York and the MTA worked together to extend the 7 Subway line farther west from its current terminus at Times Square to the new subway station at 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue. Once completed, the 7 Subway will be the only line south of 59th Street to provide service west of Ninth Avenue, offering access to the Jacob Javits Convention Center and introducing subway service and fostering transit-oriented development to the emerging, mixed-use community in Midtown West. Service will also improve for customers using the 7 Subway line in Queens and Manhattan as a result of the new station and additional tail tracks that extend to 26th Street to allow for the storage of more trains.

Construction of the extension began in December 2007. For the first time in New York City, tunnel boring machines (TBMs) were used to mine the subway tunnels. Two Herrenknecht manufactured TBMs burrowed 9,285 feet from Eleventh Avenue and 26th Street to Times Square. Local 147 NYC Sandhogs offered the Mayor the opportunity to name the TBMs and he chose to name them after his daughters, Emma and Georgina. As the tunnel boring machines mined, they placed pre-cast concrete lining rings along the excavated tunnel, making up the permanent liner of the finished tunnel. Tunneling between 34th Street and Times Square presented unique challenges, as the subway will run under the existing Eighth Avenue Subway, Amtrak/NJ Transit tunnels, as well as tunnels to the former New York Central Line, the Lincoln Tunnel and the Port Authority Bus Terminal and ramps. To create the new station cavern below 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue, the contractor used controlled drill-and-blast. Work will continue into next year to complete full signal and power installation.

In January of 2005, the City Council overwhelmingly approved the Bloomberg Administration's plan for rezoning the Far West Side of Manhattan. The rezoning allows for more than 40 million square feet of mixed-used development, including 24 million square feet of Class A office development and 13,500 new apartments. The approval also resulted in the mapping of public parks and open space. The City created two local development corporations: the Hudson Yards Infrastructure Corporation to finance the costs of the 7 Subway Extension, new parks, and other needed infrastructure; and the Hudson Yards Development Corporation (HYDC), which oversees planning and development in the Hudson Yards on behalf of the City. Hudson Yards is defined as the area bounded by Seventh and Eighth Avenues (East), West 28th/30th Streets (South), West 43rd Street (North) and Hudson River Park (West).

“This is truly an historic day and I along with the staff of HYDC are thrilled to be celebrating the 7 extension along with Mayor Bloomberg,” said HYDC President Ann Weisbrod. “This day would not have been possible without the hard work and cooperation of so many people in the Mayor’s administration including City Planning, Office of Management and Budget, and the Law Department. And special thanks to all of the staff of the MTA who worked so closely with us to make this day possible.”

“The construction of the 7 Subway extension will redefine the future of Manhattan’s West Side,” said Alan Steel, CEO and President of the New York Convention Center Operating Corporation, which operates the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. “As we complete our own state-of-the-art renovation, this new subway station, right outside our doors, will introduce new audiences to the Javits Center and provide easier access for more than two million visitors we host each year. I would like to commend Mayor Bloomberg, MTA Chairman Prendergast and their staffs for their visionary work in making today a reality.”

The new subway station at 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue will be ADA accessible, and will be the first station in the system to have two high-rise incline elevators that will provide access to riders between the upper mezzanine and lower mezzanine, which is 108 feet below street level. Four high-rise escalators will also be installed at the station.

MTA Capital Construction is managing the construction project and is being supported by a joint venture of Hill/HDR/Liro. In addition, Parsons Brinckerhoff provided design support with assistance from Dattner Architects. Work on the major structural elements was performed by a S3II, a joint venture of Shea, Schiavone, Skanska which included tunnel boring from 26th Street and Eleventh Avenue to 42nd Street and Eighth Avenue and mining of the station cavern. The three ventilation and facility buildings were constructed by CCA Halmar, a joint venture of Scalamandre/Oliveira, and Yonkers Construction. Remaining finishes are being completed by a joint venture of Skanska Railworks. A secondary station entrance will be located on Eleventh Avenue between 34th and 35th Streets, which is being constructed by John P. Picone, Inc.

A vibrant and colorful mosaic artwork will be installed at the 34th Street and Eleventh Avenue station entrances inside a recessed ceiling feature. The artwork is commissioned by MTA Arts for Transit and Urban Design.

The 7 Subway Extension is an important piece of the overall development taking place across the Far West Side of Manhattan and the City’s commitment to building on this progress. The Hudson Yards development, one of the largest private developments in U.S. history, is currently underway. Since 2005, developers have committed more than $11 billion to build 14 million square feet of office, hotel, and residential space in the area. To date, 6,000 units of housing have been built, including 1,600 units of affordable housing. 3,000 more apartments are expected to be built during the next five years. The first phase of the Hudson Park & Boulevard, which is two-and-a-half-acres, is also under construction.

Oh, it's wonderful. I didn't remember where in the video, but I saw the sign of future infill station. Perhaps if funding will be available in ten or twenty years time, we could see it

Completely a possibility. However, we'll also have to see if the demand is there for a 10th avenue station.

Is this the first new station since 1989 (not counting replacing an old station with a new one on the same location)?

I can't get only one thing: Hudson Yards is going to be a new financial/cultural heart of NY, why couldn't they make a really beautiful, spacious and modern station?
For example, such as station in Canary Wharf(London):


Or in Business District in Moscow:

Not exactly. Hudson Yards project is mixed-use development and would be a catalyst for change for West Side only. As for station, what could you expect?
Here are renders again:
