Moynihan Train Hall Opens in New York City!

Moynihan 20

On January 1, 2021, New York City celebrated the opening of the new 255,000 square-foot (sf) Moynihan Train Hall on the west side of Manhattan. Shenoy Engineering, PC is proud to have provided electrical inspection services for Phases II & III of this project. The Hall has taken nearly three years to build and is part of the overall Penn Station Redevelopment Master Plan.

Phase II of the $1.6 billion Moynihan Station Project provided improvements to the existing Farley Building and Annex between 8th and 9th Avenues. It entailed approximately $70 million in electrical work, providing new service feeders, switchgear, distribution systems, and devices. Phase III of the project involved the redevelopment of the James A. Farley Post Office building into a mixed-use development of 850,000 sf comprised of approximately 730,000 sf of office space and 120,000 sf of retail space. Three new lobbies are being constructed to access the commercial office space as well as 19 new elevators, serving four new cores on five floors plus a concourse level. The project entails approximately $25 million in electrical work to provide new service feeders, switchgear, distribution systems, and electrical devices.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has said of the project, “Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan was a man of true vision. He saw the potential in an underutilized post office and knew that if done correctly, this facility could not only give New York the transit hub it has long deserved but serve as a monument to the public itself. We built this as a statement of who we are, and who we aspire to be. Is it grand? Yes. Is it bold? Yes, because that is the spirit of New York and that is the statement we want to make to our visitors, to our children and to future generations.”
