72nd Street B/C Re-Opens as Part of Enhanced Station Initiative


The West 72nd Street Station of the B/C line reopened this week after a five-month period of restoration and modernization. The project completed by LHP Architects as part of a design/ build team which included ECCO III and Hardesty & Hanover. The newly renovated station features new digital information displays, energy-efficient lighting, better wayfinding and upgraded security equipment as well as a mosaic art installation by Yoko Ono, called SKY. The scope of work involved repairs to the station structure, replacement of floor slabs and steel columns as well as enhanced waterproofing. The completed station is brighter, cleaner and easier to navigate.
