MAS Statement on the Release of the Penn/Farley RFP

On Friday, January 22, Governor Cuomo, Empire State Development Corporation, Amtrak, and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority issued a joint solicitation to developers for the redevelopment, design, and construction of Penn Station and the Farley Post Office building as part of the Empire Station Complex. Responses are due by April 22, 2016. Read the full Request for Proposal on ESD’s website (PDF) »» MAS issued the following statement on the news:
“We are pleased to see the Governor’s detailed Request for Proposal for the redevelopment of Penn Station and the Farley Complex released today. However, we believe the framing of the project for Penn must demand more. Any long-term plan to meaningfully address the problems at Penn Station must include the relocation of Madison Square Garden. MAS calls on all responding firms to harness the creativity, ambition, and talent of New York’s development community: be bold and propose a grand new Penn Station worthy of our great city.” Mary W. Rowe Executive Vice President Municipal Art Society of New York
