Woods Bagot, as part of a team of experts led by The Municipal Arts Society and The Regional Plan Association, conducted an analysis and design study to reimagine the future relationship between Penn Station, Madison Square Garden and the larger West Midtown area. Woods Bagot’s proposal uses strategic interventions to keep an enhanced and expanded MSG in its current location while re-establishing Penn Station as a world-class transit center and introducing vitalizing street-level connections.

The proposal removes MSG’s 5,000-seat theatre to make room for a grand entry hall facing the historic Farley Post Office (the future Moynihan Station). The four-story-tall expansion flows around the arena, framing a second entry hall, bringing street-activating retail and dining to the block and supporting a new public rooftop garden.

Ultimately, the proposal illuminates the tradeoffs of this less-costly approach that preserves the investments in the Garden and Penn Station. Though not a panacea, the strategy achieves many critical goals: endowing Penn Station with a fitting civic identity, significantly enhancing the passenger experience and remaking MSG as a catalyzing centerpiece for a new district.
