A New Terminal Under Grand Central: The East Side Access Project
Monday, October 6th at 6:30 pm
Please note this event is now SOLD OUT.
One of the nation’s largest transportation infrastructure projects is currently underway right in the heart of Midtown. The MTA’s East Side Access Project will bring the Long Island Rail Road into a brand new terminal to be built below—and incorporated into—Grand Central. Join a panel of expert insiders to hear about the grand vision, engineering innovations, and considerable technical challenges behind the new Terminal, expected to open in 2019-2023. The Project represents a whole new level of investment in American public transportation, and will bring New York closer to European and Asian urban practices. Speakers include architect Frank Prial, Jr., AIA, Beyer Blinder Belle Architects & Planners; MTA Program Manager, Grand Central Terminal Douglas Tilden; MTA Associate Director of Planning Jack Dean; Elisa Picca, LIRR Chief Planning Officer; and Edith Hsu-Chen, NYC Department of City Planning Director for Manhattan Borough. Maxinne Leighton, Associate AIA, Parsons Brinckerhoff, Inc. will moderate the discussion.
