The Myrtle-Wyckoff Station Complex is a key, five-level, two-station intermodal transit node on the Brooklyn/Queens border. The Myrtle Avenue Station is a center platform station two levels below grade. The Wyckoff Avenue Station is an elevated, split-island platform station. The new headhouse created a dramatic entrance to both subway stations, and to the adjacent bus routes; three new ADA compliant elevators ease circulation. A beacon in the neighborhood, the naturally ventilated headhouse’s gracious circulation spaces are capped by a mosaic by Cadence Giersbach on the ceiling. Dattner Architects joint ventured with WSP for this pilot project in the MTA’s Design for the Environment program.
