Project Description

The Municipal Art Society of New York recently presented a program entitled The Next 100, in which they asked three firms to propose designs for Grand Central Terminal.

From the MAS website (mas.org):

WXY sought to find ways to bring new energy and activity to this neighborhood by reinvigorating a number of key places – the base of the MetLife building as a new open space and cultural anchor, opening up Vanderbilt Avenue to create seamless access to the tracks below grade, and a transformed Park Avenue viaduct.

Claire Weisz, Principal at WXY, said, “New zoning rules should trigger real transportation links to public space. One way is to harness the untapped potential of Grand Central’s edges. The plan for Midtown’s near future needs to make the Grand Central neighborhood a place people enjoy being in not just running through.”
