The building consists of a glass cube fifty feet tall,
extending along Broadway from Fulton Street to John Street. From the
center of this cube a cone, also made of glass, rises to a height of
110 feet. Several buildings will have to be condemned and destroyed.
Building -- a nine-story building considered a skyscraper when
it was built in 1889 -- will be preserved. It will be used to provide
and spaces for small retail stores on the south side of the structure.
stores will also be included on the second floor of the station, though
details are still being worked out. The project’s architects
also say that some of the subway connections remain unresolved.
