SHoP Architects Design Challenge Presentation

After 50 years, Madison Square Garden’s (MSG) special arena permit has expired, presenting NYC with an opportunity to rethink Midtown. Under the NYC Planning Commission’s standard practice, a new permit would allow MSG to operate on top of Penn Station in perpetuity. This could permanently preclude any significant improvement to the transit hub, saddling future generations with a failed Penn Station. MAS has invited some of New York’s most well-known and respected design firms to re-envision New York’s Penn Station – the busiest train station in North America – and Madison Square Garden. A new Penn Station and a new arena will be an economic engine for New York City – creating thousands of jobs, unlocking billions of dollars in additional private investment, making millions of commutes a year faster and more pleasant.
