Set below Madison Square Garden and Two Penn Plaza in Manhattan, today’s New York Penn Station welcomes Amtrak and Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) passengers into a confined, crowded and poorly lit environment. In an effort to recreate the grand entrance to the city lost when the original Penn Station was demolished, Empire State Development (ESD) is dramatically reconfiguring the James A. Farley Post Office, which sits 50 feet above Penn Station’s platforms, to create the Moynihan Train Hall.

Since 1991, WSP USA has worked with ESD, Amtrak, the U.S. Post Office, developers Related and Vornado and countless other stakeholders to advance the project. Work on Phase 2, which will transform the Farley Building into a grand transit hall for LIRR and Amtrak passengers and provide 750,000 square feet of retail and office space, began in the spring of 2017. We are continuing our involvement in the project by providing program management services during Phase 2 construction.
