A Beaux-Arts icon that first opened in 1913, Grand Central Terminal is one of New York City’s most heavily trafficked public spaces. In the 1970s, its significant use and fading luster fueled speculation about demolition; today, the terminal still stands, thanks in part to a high-profile preservation campaign led by former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and architect Philip Johnson.

Since 1990, Beyer Blinder Belle has worked on the revitalization of Grand Central Terminal, ensuring that America’s busiest train station continues to serve as a contemporary, multi-use transit and retail hub. This legacy has provided the BBB project team with unique insight into the terminal's iconic stories, unknown histories, and most recent evolutions.
