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.
