Final phase under way on NYCT's subway station rehabilitation


Construction is under way on the final phase of New York City Transit's $80 million two-station subway complex rehabilitation in Queens, N.Y.

Once the project is complete, the Roosevelt Avenue station on the IND line and the 74th Street station on the IRT line will share an entrance from a 50-foot-high steel and glass building, featuring a solid glass-block façade and painted steel curtain-wall system, with clear laminated-pattern glass in fixed awning windows.

The complex — which includes a New York City Department of Transportation/Triboro Bus Intermodal facility — will house retail facilities, and New York City Transit equipment and personnel.

Scheduled for completion in 2006, the project is designed by Vollmer Associates, and being constructed by Slattery Skanska/Gottlieb Skanska JV.
