In mid-2015, Lower Manhattan will greatly expand its transit access with the opening of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub. Designed by renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, $3.9 billion hub will be home to the PATH, connect to 13 subway lines via the Fulton Street Transit Center and other terminals, and link pedestrians to the World Financial Center (WFC) and its ferries through an underground concourse. Its largely column-free interior main space will allow natural light to reach the rail platforms 60 feet below ground.
Work on the 800,000-square-foot hub officially began in September 2005, and it is slated to open in 2015. For more details about the groundbreaking click here, or visit the Looking Ahead page to read more about the landmark structure.
