Vornado Realty Trust is closing The Pennsy food hall, a favorite among Madison Square Garden revelers, to make way for a massive modernization of properties.

The retail space at the base of 2 Penn Plaza is expected to close at the end of March, according to Commercial Observer.

Its closure comes as Vornado is working on a $2 billion redevelopment of its portfolio of buildings that surround Penn Station. At 2 Penn Plaza, the landlord is planning to extend the first four stories of the building, and add 145,000 square feet of office space.

It is also overseeing the large-scale redevelopment of the nearby Farley Building at 390 Ninth Avenue, which will include a new train hall and a revamp of 1 Penn Plaza.

At The Pennsy, closing vendors include Sabi Sushi, Pat LaFrieda, Ribalta, The Little Beet and Taco Dumbo. [CO] — David Jeans
