A critical component of the Harrison Waterfront Redevelopment Plan, the replacement and upgrade of the PATH Harrison Station serve as a catalyst for further development of the surrounding area. It provides the community with an elegantly designed, high-performance station and a fully accessible public space that responds to passenger needs. All these elements contribute to the City of Harrison’s visual identity while bringing the station up to current codes and increasing its capacity in response to anticipated growth in ridership.
The replacement station consists of four new station houses and new elevated platforms located where the railway viaduct crosses a major boulevard. The platforms feature glass and steel roof canopies to protect passengers from inclement weather and sun. The station houses significantly enhance public access to the platforms in anticipation of the 10-car PATH expansion program. The BIM-designed project is designed to PANYNJ Sustainable Building Guidelines (SBG), LEED Silver equivalent, and is designed to respond to new FEMA projections for flood elevation.
