New York plans bus terminal design contest

New York

New York’s Port Authority has announced a design competition for a new Midtown Manhattan bus terminal

The competition – which is expected to launch this month – will seek proposals for a modular structure to replace the overcapacity Port Authority Bus Terminal building.

Constructed in 1950, the iconic structure features around 220 departure gates and handles 225,000 passengers every day.

The redevelopment project is expected to cost between £5.5 billion and £7 billion and will include a temporary structure, a bus parking garage and new ramps leading to the Lincoln Tunnel which connects New York to New Jersey.

The competition was announced by the Port Authority’s executive director, Pat Foye during a board meeting last week.

Exact details of the new terminal’s location have yet to be confirmed and the project is expected to take between 10 and 15 years to complete.

The judging panel has also yet to be confirmed but will feature international experts in planning, transportation and architecture – according to The Record.

A winner is expected to be announced in September.
