WORLD TRADE CENTER PORT AUTHORITY TRANS-HUDSON TRANSPORTATION HUB BY SANTIAGO CALATRAVA IN NEW YORK CITY

With its spectacular soaring design, the new World Trade Center (WTC) Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) Transportation Hub promises not only to bring architectural beauty to downtown Manhattan but also to significantly improve mass-transit connections throughout the region. Designed by celebrated architect Santiago Calatrava, the transportation hub will feature pedestrian concourses to existing and future transportation services. Construction on the project began in 2007.

Located close to the northeast corner of the WTC site at Church and Fulton Streets (between Towers 2 and 3), the transportation hub is designed to accommodate 250,000 pedestrians per day – which corresponds to projected ridership numbers for 2025. (The temporary station can accommodate up to 50,000 daily pedestrians.) The transportation hub`s innovative design features retractable 150-foot-high, glass-and-steel “wings” that will allow natural light to pass through to the rail platforms 60 feet below street level.
