The City of New Rochelle has selected FXCollaborative to redesign its historic train station and the surrounding transit center. The project will bring aesthetic upgrades and help improve walkability, pedestrian flow, and bicycle access.

Completed in 1887, the station has undergone several renovations and expansions, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2009. Today, the New Rochelle train station serves as a major transportation hub for the city, with connections to the Metro-North Railroad, Amtrak, and local bus service.

“We are thrilled to announce the selection of a design consultant to reimagine the New Rochelle Transit Center Station and Campus,” said Mayor Noam Bramson. “We believe this initiative will significantly impact our city and our region, particularly as Penn Access is poised to increase traffic to and through the New Rochelle Transit Center.”

As the busiest stop on the Metro-North New Haven line, the station sees more than 6,000 outbound riders every weekday, a number that is expected to increase following completion of the MTA’s Penn Station Access project in 2027. When complete, the Access Project will make New Rochelle the only city in southern Westchester to offer direct access to both the east and west sides of Manhattan.

  1. Great news. Hopefully we’ll see something very clean and modern to contrast with the old frame stationhouse.

  2. Let’s hope they actually talk to bus riders who are generally ignored. Few things worse than standing (or sitting) at a bus platform in a transit center.
