    Fulton Street Transit Center: MTA Releases New Photos Of Massive Transportation Hub (PHOTOS)

    In December, we got our first glimpse of the giant skylight inside the massive, glass-walled, "spectacular," Fulton Street Transit Center--the under construction transportation hub downtown which will connect 10 subway lines and feature 70,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and office space.

    Then in February we saw some mesmerizing renderings of the Center including one which showed, as DNAinfo described, a "pedestrian passageway beneath Dey Street, opening in November, which will have a mirrored wall that will show hazy reflections of the shapes and colors of everyone who walks past it."

    And today, we're happy to report the MTA has released new photos from the construction, showing the Center slowly but surely taking shape. Take a look below at the new photos, which show winding staircases and a more progress on the skylight, also called the "oculus."

    Scheduled to open in June of 2014, the Center will be just a few blocks away from the new One World Trade Center (which in a few weeks will surpass the Empire State building as the city's tallest) and the 9/11 memorial.

    Did they start putting cladding on the Pace dorm? Looks interesting.

    The Fulton Street Transit Center was officially renamed 'Fulton Center' in May 2012.

    Default Fulton Center.

    I like that. Nice and simple.

    Agreed. The old name was a mouthful.

    As most people here, I was quite angry when they replaced the dome with the truncated top, but now that I think of it, the south-facing oculus will provide even better lighting effects than the original egg-shaped symmetrical dome.

    Do those heliostats hanging off of the roof of the center have much of an effect? Does anyone know if they're going to install more sunlight reflectors? It looks like they don't do much at all.

    Looking forward to using the Fulton Center when it opens in 2031

    it's really impossible to tell if the heliostats do anything just by looking up at them. You need to have measurements of the amount of light entering on any given day with and without those things to be able to say they don't work with certainty. I doubt they would spend millions on them if there wasn't going to be a measurable difference in light, however.

    Uh oh. Those panels on the oculus are showing lots of dimples.
