Grimshaw has revealed the latest images of its design for Fulton Street subway station in New York. The new streamlined transport hub will bring together six existing stations and become a key focal point of the regeneration of Lower Manhattan.
Handling more than 275,000 passengers a day, the 34,000m 2 interchange will increase the station's capacity to 12 subway lines and will link up with Santiago Calatrava's World Trade Center transportation hub. The central feature of the £270 million project is a 34m-high asymmetric dome, which will rise above the glazed entrance and pavilion.
Work is expected to start on site early next year.
