The $245 million project will see the size of the library double.

“The exterior and street life surrounding the library is just as much a part of the building as the interior,” says Rob Adamson of DIALOG, a partner company in the project designed by architects Snohetta. “The outdoor plaza welcomes visitors from East Village and beyond and invites them into the building to explore, relax, reflect and connect.”

The building concept was shaped by the ground level transport system that bisects the library site.
