FULTON STREET ENCLOSURE
The MTA plans to make the Fulton Street MTA Transfer Station, at the corner of Broadway and Fulton Street in Lower Manhattan, the ‘Jewel of Lower Manhattan’ by implementing a wide open building concept, substantial rehabilitations of existing Lower Manhattan subway stations affecting 11 subway and PATH commuter rail services, new and improved underground passageways, ADA-compliant access to streets and trains, as well as underground connections to the nationally-recognized landmark Corbin Building which at the time of its construction in 1888 was the tallest building in New York City.
The Fulton Street MTA Enclosure is a later phase of the Transfer Station project that encompasses the foundation and structures of the exterior glass walls.
The enclosure is the only portion of the project visible from the street. It is surrounded on three sides by the ‘Canyon of Heroes’ complete with custom sidewalk and granite curbs and will present a stunning facade to the many levels of retail and dining amenities found inside.
Plaza Construction is the general contractor for the project which is scheduled to commence construction on this phase in April 2011.
