The restoration of the Farley Building to create the new Moynihan Train Hall included:

  • The renovation of 1.4 million square feet of transit, retail, and commercial office space, which included the restoration of the building’s original, historic façade.
  • The construction of a 92-foot-high skylight that spans about an acre above the former post office’s historic steel trusses and new concourse level. This required 775,000 pounds of steel reinforcement and the installation of nearly 2,200 individual glass panels.
  • A major demolition of all existing structural and architectural elements, asbestos, and lead abatement, as well as a structural steel reinforcement and rehabilitation package of the building’s mechanical and electrical systems to make the facility air-conditioned and safe.
