MTA Capital Construction (MTACC) today unveiled its modern update to the public plaza on the northwest corner of 63rd Street and Third Avenue, inviting the community to enjoy the renovated public space.
As part of an intensive, community-focused design process, the agency held numerous meetings with neighborhood associations, nearby business owners, and representatives from the Royale Condominium, the entity that owns and will maintain the public space. Recommendations by the community were incorporated into the plaza’s final design.
The plaza features aluminum alloy benches that seat 31 visitors, new landscaping, state of the art lighting, bicycle racks, garbage receptacles, and a water fountain. The granite planter boxes double as seating for an additional 18 visitors.
“This important project marks a long-promised improvement to the area and is the result of a strong community partnership,” MTACC President Michael Horodniceanu. “We are proud to work with residents to make this new plaza a reality.”
