Avi Schick, chairman of the Lower Manhattan Development Corp., said the agency is talking with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority about its recent announcement that a $900 million transit hub may not be built as designed. The MTA said the Fulton Street Transit Center is one of several projects that have gone over budget; it is deciding whether to scrap an expensive glass-domed design. The MTA had hoped to build the Fulton Street facility, connecting a dozen lines and a World Trade Center hub, by next year. Schick said Thursday at an LMDC meeting: "Lower Manhattan has been put through a lot and promised a lot." From: - February 15, 2008 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
