Redesign and modernization of the Times Square Station of the New York City transit Authority is part of the urban renewal for this famous district. A mix of major office buildings, a hotel, renovated theaters, a wholesale market and various retail uses will cluster around the station. Developers and planners expect to renovate the station while maintaining train traffic. A private firm is paying for much of the reconstruction, overseen by City and State redevelopment groups and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority. The architecture will stress improved lighting and a revised passenger flow through broad corridors which will also connect the buildings overhead. Elimination of nooks and crannies will be a major deterrent to crime. Major changes in utility facilities will be involved in the reconstruction. While planning is nearing completion, contractors have not been chosen nor schedules established.
