The Rebirth of Penn Station is on Track

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has released the plans, developers and contractors for the revamp of the Pennsylvania Station-Farley Compex, scheduled for a 2020 completion.

Skidmore and Owings & Merrill designed the revamp, and Related Companies, Skanska and Vornado Realty will develop the 255,000-square-foot train hall. The station will serve both Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road passengers.

At 250,000 square feet, which is larger than Grand Central Station, the James A. Farley Post Office building will transform into the Moynihan Train Hall. The Long Island Rail Road concourses will be redeveloped, and then the MTA will take control of them.

Technological attributes will also be added, such as free WiFi, real-time train updates, and USB and laptop charging stations.
