Port Authority Bus Terminal Design + Deliverability Competition (2016)

 
 

BJH, working with a talented team of design and construction professionals, created the lowest-cost proposal in the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s (PANYNJ) 2016 Midtown Bus Terminal Design Competition. BJH’s main task on the team was to identify a potential receiver district to land unused air rights from the surrounding PANYNJ properties and to model potential real estate revenues streams that could help pay for the construction of the new terminal. BJH’s approach takes into account the complicated construction phasing and existing conditions in the neighborhood, careful to protect community facilities and historic properties. The team’s proposal reshapes the public realm surrounding the PANYNJ bus terminal, adding significant new open space and connecting the improvements already underway at Hudson Yards, the High Line, and the Javits Center.
