I saw a large red piece of equipment on a flatbed on Liberty Street this morning, I wonder if it was part of the Max-er.
Some questions that maybe someone can answer:
What will go in above the large expanse of the PATH station roof, just to the north of the Visitors Center and west of Greenwich Street?
On the webcam it can be seen that this area is bounded on the west by a bathtub-like wall and on the east by a wall of blue.
I know the surface area there will be part of the Memorial Plaza, but am curious what kind of structure will go in over what exists now (and that will rise up to the plaza level). Will it simply be decked over, allowing space to access the PATH mechanicals, with plaza decking above that?
And is the area on the west edge of that space (where the two cranes now rise from down below) part of a pedestrian passageway at the west side of the Transportation Hub?
The roof will be built first, then the entire inside of the station (the covered area that is there now) will be gutted and rebuilt. All while the station is in service.
Here is a rendering of what it will look like from the inside.
So that arched subterranean PATH mezzanine will sit separate and apart from Calatrava's more famous and better documented central hub (the bird-like "oculus")?
And is there a link to the ground plan for the entire Calatrava project?
Thanks again. I'm still a bit confused (which is kind of amazing because I've been following this project for years and thought I understood the plan) ...
In the picture above it appears that light is coming in through the arches above the PATH mezzanine. But all the renders I've seen of the site don't seem to show any sort of exposed arches outside of the big arched oculus. What am I missing?
there will be exposed arches all through the underground mezzanine and through the east west connector under fulton street.
i would think that is where most of the 2.5 billion is going..
I should have written "arches exposed to the outside" meaning they'd be seen from above ground and allow light to penetrate down through the plaza and into the mezzanine.
Scumonkey seems to say that the light seen below will be achieved with the installation of lighting fixtures.
Renders can be so non-illuminating
actually the first pic is of a magic wand....(just covering all possibilities, as I don't see cut outs for natural light either?).
