A redeveloped major transport hub connecting 11 subway lines in Lower Manhattan

The Fulton Center will streamline subway line connections for up to 300,000 daily passengers, offering a memorable urban experience that nods to Lower Manhattan’s history, while supporting the region’s rebirth.

Organised around a large-scale atrium contained within an elegant, transparent facade, the centre draws inspiration from the surrounding neighbourhood’s cast-iron buildings and incorporates the restored 1888 Corbin Building.

The key architectural concept of redirecting natural light deep into the transit environment culminates in a conical dome highlighted by a new artwork, Sky Reflector-Net, that centres on the atrium concourse below.
