A powerhouse team will turn the country's biggest post office into itsbusiest train station.

City, state and private development officials hope the renovated station will push West Side development in Manhattan...

"When completed, the station will have three main public spaces, Drucker explains: a 140-foot-square Train Hall, which will be in the original post office building; a 60-by-200-foot Intermodal Hall, joining the commuter rail lines and subways, which will be in the “interstitial space” that separates the Eighth Avenue post office building from its annex, which fronts on Ninth Avenue; and a 60-by 300-foot East/West Corridor, joining the Intermodal Hall with the annex.

It is in finding the right uses for the areas around and above these vast public spaces is where the developers will want -- and need -- to flex their expertise."
