Not a proposal, but interesting still...(for the office portion of the project)

Governor Cuomo Announces Construction of Four Metro-North Railroad Stations in the Bronx
Agreement Among Empire State Development, MTA and Amtrak Allows Transformative Project to Move Forward.
New Stations Will Connect East Bronx Transit Desert and Metro-North to Penn Statio



Quote:
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that an agreement has been reached among the MTA, Empire State Development and Amtrak that will lead to four new Metro-North Railroad stations being built along an underutilized rail line in the east Bronx with access to Penn Station.

The parties signed a memorandum of understanding allowing the transformative project to move forward, providing a much needed transit option and dramatically reducing commute times for many Bronx residents. Empire State Development Corporation is going to work with the MTA to do the planning and expedition of the project, which will help unleash a new generation of economic development for the Bronx.

As part of the agreement, Amtrak and MTA will jointly study the feasibility of Amtrak running several trains daily from Long Island to Penn Station and continuing either north to Boston or south to Washington.
Quote:
During a meeting of the MTA Board's Metro-North Committee this morning, the committee approved the $35 million contract with HNTB New York Engineering and Architecture for preliminary engineering and design of the project, known as Metro-North's Penn Station Access project.

The new service will bring Metro-North trains over the Hell Gate Bridge into Queens, where they will merge with the Long Island Rail Road's route, proceeding through the East River Tunnels into Manhattan and west to Penn Station. In addition to the new stations, the project includes new tracks and switches, as well as power, signal, communication and infrastructure upgrades.
Quote:
In addition to dramatically reducing commute times of East Bronx residents, bringing Metro-North trains to Penn Station will substantially expand the labor pool for employers in the east Bronx, such as the medical complexes in the Morris Park area, and will also provide commuting opportunities for Bronx residents to work in Westchester County and Connecticut.

The Long Island Amtrak study makes sense. There are 3 million people on LI, generally higher income, and it's very difficult to get off the island, with most bridges/tunnels suffering from extreme congestion.

They don't even need Acela, just an Amtrak connection to Acela. There's LIRR, of course, but they need an express connection.

the latest effort for a Long Island Sound crossing already fell through, so don't expect to see much discourse over that in the next few years.

Thats why it really needs to be a part of a bold NEC overhaul. A cross-Sound tunnel could also carry autos thus dramatically lowering congestion over the Whitestone and Throggs Neck Bridges.

Vornado may now be targeting tech tenants at Farley Post Office redevelopment
Steve Roth said 900K sf landmarked building will be "best creative space in Manhattan"






By Kevin Sun
February 12, 2019


Quote:
Despite previous reports that it was targeting tenants from the high-growth life sciences industry, Vornado Realty Trust now appears to be broadening its reach at its Farley Post Office redevelopment.

The project, a key part of the redevelopment of the Penn Station complex, will be “the best creative space in Manhattan,” Vornado CEO Steve Roth said on the company’s fourth-quarter earnings call Tuesday morning. “It is a horizontal campus in an iconic landmarked building, much like the horizontal campuses favored by our FAANG tenants in the west,” he added, using an acronym for Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google.
Quote:
One of Vornado’s largest tenants is Facebook, which leases at least 750,000 square feet from the landlord, mostly in Midtown South.

One caller asked if this meant that the company was turning away from life sciences to more “traditional” tech tenants. “Maybe,” Roth responded. “We’re an equal opportunity landlord. When an important tenant at proper pricing comes in, we’re very happy to welcome everybody with open arms.”
Quote:
The company has seen some interest from science tenants, and more interest from “creative class” tenants, Roth said, and even interest from some “fairly significant” financial firms.

“Once again, this is not a special-purpose building. It’s a building designed to service the entire market,” he concluded.

Just a rendering of a vision, but it would be nice if they could extend this walkway to the High Line...

A little more on that...

This pedestrian bridge could connect Hudson Yards and Moynihan Train Hall
DXA Studios designed a sinuous walkway that could safely shepherd commuters between the two destinations






By Zoe Rosenberg
Mar 4, 2019


Quote:
Imagine a future where navigating the two bustling blocks from Hudson Yards to Moynihan Train Hall means bypassing cars entirely. For this year’s 2019 Design Challenge by Metals in Construction magazine, architects, engineers, and students were called to do just that by designing a pedestrian bridge that could safely and efficiently shepherd the estimated 100,000 people walking from the train hall to Hudson Yards each day while minimally affecting the street below.

The winning design by DXA Studio draws on the interlaced steel plate work of the High Line and the steel structure of McKim Mead and White’s original Penn Station to create a sinuous and structurally plausible steel walkway the connects the transportation hub portion of the train hall to an area near The Shed at Hudson Yards.
Quote:
DXA Studio teamed up with structural engineering company Silman to shore up its design, called the Midtown Viaduct, especially for its longest span over Ninth Avenue.

It’s unlikely the firm’s steel walkway will ever leave the page, but the design serves to move the conversation forward about the possibilities of steel construction and the crucial importance of walkability in cities. The winners were awarded $15,000, but moving the needle on issues of pedestrian safety is invaluable.

Penn Station’s new main entrance gets fresh renderings
The new entrance at 33rd Street will bring light into the cramped station






By Amy Plitt
May 16, 2019


Quote:
With a little more than two years to go before Penn Station is transformed into the brand-new Moynihan Train Hall, some new details about the revamp are being brought to light—specifically, new renderings and specs for an entrance at 33rd Street and Seventh Avenue, which will function as the main entrance of the train depot.

The entry, to be known officially as the East End Gateway, will lead passengers into the Long Island Rail Road concourse via an open, airy atrium with three escalators. It will be “literally the first time you will have illumination and light in that concourse in over 50 years,” according to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who unveiled new renderings at a press conference earlier today.

“Passengers will be able to come in that entrance and avoid the front of Penn Station, there will be less traffic and you’ll have access to the subway and the LIRR,” Cuomo said. “It will be a gateway to a world class facility. This is not a proposal—we are getting to work now.”

There will be improvements above and below ground as part of the finalized plans for the entrance. At street level, there will be a new public plaza on 33rd Street—where some pedestrian-only access already exists—as well as a glass atrium with a 32-foot-tall overhang. Underground, the entrance will lead to a concourse with taller ceilings and wider floorplans—a boon for LIRR riders, who currently use one of the most cramped and claustrophobia-inducing parts of Penn Station.

Great. And 2 Penn will continue to be a shit building, Penn Station will continue to be a 3rd world disaster, and MSG will continue to look like an ugly tumor that has no place being situated where it is.

Cuomoland, where even simple improvements that should have been done decades ago are hailed as transformational. The platform level is still going to be a shitshow because of the narrow platforms and problematic vertical access that choke passenger flow. That can only be addressed by removing the high rise and MSG to redo the track level layout.

He did specifically hail the coming the East Side Access on current schedule so maybe that will actually happen.

On the plus side the partial closure of 33rd St. for the plaza is a major good. Now go back and widen every sidewalk within 10 blocks of Penn and the PABT.
