The project will consist of a 255,000-square-foot new terminal for the Long Island Railroad and Amtrak. This will increase the Penn Station’s total concourse floor space by more than 50 percent. An additional 700,000 square feet will be developed for commercial, retail and dining spaces to create a new mixed-use civic space for West Manhattan. Designed by original Penn Station architects McKim, Mead and White as a sister to the grand train hall, the Farley Building will see its core turned into a light-filled train hall meant to evoke the look and feel of its long-demolished partner.
