GRAND CENTRAL SUBWAY ENTRANCES UNVEILED
Schindler tells ELEVATOR WORLD it provided five 9700 escalators and three elevators for the new entrances to the NYC Metropolitan Transportation Authority's (MTA) Grand Central-42nd Street subway station at One Vanderbilt, a 67-story office supertall developed by SL Green and designed by Kohn Pederson Fox in Midtown Manhattan. The elevators are by Mongrain Vertical Transport with CEC Elevator Cab Corp. cabs and entrances. MTA and SL Green held a grand opening for the subway entrance in December 2020, reported by outlets including Mass Transit, which pointed out SL Green invested US$220 million in the new entrances. They will ease access to numerous subway lines and the Metro-North Railroad from one of MTA's busiest subway stations. MTA President of Construction & Development Janno Lieber described the project as an “example of how the MTA is leveraging private investment for public improvement," with entrances served by escalators and Americans With Disabilities Act-compliant elevators.
