Fulton Center

Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture blog.  In case this is your first time reading this let me tell you what you can expect.  We will be showing you projects that SWA Architecture after its vast years of being in business has worked on.  We are very proud of all the projects that we work on and want to share them with you.  You can see below from past posts some of the projects we work on and let me tell you, we only have great ones to follow. 
This post we will be focusing on the Fulton Street Transit Center that was just opened to the public.  It is a beautiful station, one of the best in Manhattan if not the best.  The station to some can be seen as a revitalization of downtown.  A new symbol of prosperity following the attacks of 9/11.  Taking seven years and 1.4 billion dollars to make, we can sure marvel at what we are looking at.  Let me just clarify, SWA was hired by NYC Transit to consult with the design team on retail components of the transit center including the shops, stores, storage areas, access to retail spaces and their visibility.  So next time you’re by this station walk out of your way to check this beauty out.
