The Fulton Center project, a $1.4 billion undertaking by the MTA designed to give Lower Manhattan commuters easier access to multiple subway lines and the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, has just taken another step towards completion. On Monday, October 8th, The Dey Street entrance was opened to the public. Located at the southwest corner of Broadway and Dey Street, this new entrance includes an attractive glass canopy structure, extruded aluminum wall cladding, and an elevator that currently brings patrons to the Fulton Street Station southbound platform.
In its final configuration, this entrance will serve 11 subway lines and provide connections to the PATH trains at the World Trade Center and Hudson River ferries at the World Financial Center. Skanska USA, headquartered in New York, is completing several of the largest contracts throughout the Fulton Center and the World Trade Center, and was chosen to design and build several temporary walls to protect the passengers from the continuing construction as portions of the complex are opened to the public.
For the Dey Street entrance’s interior, Skanska chose Rakks SAF aluminum shelf filler to be used as decorative cladding on a temporary partition, to mirror the adjacent high end aluminum finishes.
Below are some images of the installation, as well as the finished product.
