Moynihan Train Hall

Billings Jackson designed many of the customer interaction points for the new train hall in the Penn Station complex, which is an extraordinary reworking of the landmark James A. Farley Post Office Building by architect Skidmore Owings & Merrill and contractor Skanska. The scheme brings light to the concourses for the first time in more than 50 years, increases total concourse space by 50 percent, and restores the grandeur that was lost with the demolition of the original Penn Station half a century ago.

Billings Jackson was responsible for the design of gate markers with train departure information and dynamic lighting; the wayfinding signage system hardware; monumental signage elements; free-standing information displays; police kiosks, and counters with integrated charging ports.

Moynihan Train Hall has been received with rapture, giving New York an uplifting new gateway that has been delivered on time and to budget by SOM and its team.
