YIMBY last reported on the World Trade Center Transportation Hub last July, when the ribbed structure’s exoskeleton was complete, the glass skylight was going in, and interior work was the focus. Now, the transit center, dubbed the Oculus, is expected to officially open in early March, Curbed NY reports. The $3.9 billion creation was designed by Santiago Calatrava and will serve as the terminus for World Trade Center-bound PATH trains, and connection points for the A, C, E, J, Z, R, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 subway lines, multiple MTA buses, and ferry service. In addition, 365,000 square feet of retail space, managed by Westfield Corp., is in the works within the transit hub alone.

    Too bad this money and vision was and is not not available to rebuild a truly needed transportation hub, that warrants such grandeur, Pennsylvania Station.

    • How could it? This money was specifically earmarked for rebuilding Lower Manhattan. Now they could have used it to do a better transport project than this – but it couldn’t be Penn Station.
