Penn Station, MSG Proposals Unveiled by City’s Top Architects

The Department of City Planning had recently voted to cap Madison Square Garden’s tenure above Penn Station. The arena’s 50-year occupancy permit expired in December, and it had sought a renewal that would allow it to stay put “in perpetuity.”

Instead, planners renewed MSG’s permit with a 15-year expiration date, prodding the venue to relocate and allow crowded Penn Station room to expand.

“The best possible outcomes for the city would be a relocated Madison Square Garden coupled with a rebuilt Penn Station,” City Planning Commissioner Amanda Burden said May 22.
