“Penn Station is the train version of LaGuardia,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said during a press conference on Tuesday, before referring to the Manhattan transit hub as “decrepit” and an “affront to passengers.”

Cuomo went on to unveil plans for the new Moynihan Train Hall, which will be redeveloped from the existing James A. Farley Post Office. It was announced that Related Companies, Vornado Realty Trust and Skanska won the bid for the project. The redevelopment will cost an estimated $1.6 billion, and is expected to be completed in 2020.

In all, the new station will feature 112,000 square feet of retail, 588,000 square feet of office space and a 225,000-square-foot train hall. It’ll play a key part in the governor’s $100 billion investment into the state’s infrastructure over the next five years.

One of the station’s more striking elements will be its enormous skylight which, according to Cuomo, will be made from “roughly one acre of glass.”
