Myrtle Wyckoff Station Complex


The Myrtle-Wyckoff Station Complex is an important intermodal transit node on the Brooklyn/Queens border. The station complex consists of two stations on five levels. The Myrtle Avenue Station on the BMT 'L' line is a center platform subway station two levels below grade, with a mezzanine one level below Wyckoff Avenue. The Wyckoff Avenue Station on the BMT 'M' line is an elevated, split-island platform station above Myrtle Avenue. The meeting of the two lines defines a triangular island bounded by Wyckoff, Myrtle and Gates Avenues. The new Control Building occupies the island, creating a dramatic entrance to both stations, and the connections between them. A glass-enclosed 'lantern' housing a ceiling mosaic has become a neighborhood landmark. A consolidated employee facility and new street level concession spaces are also included. Rehabilitation and infrastructure work bring the stations and control house to a state of good repair, and three new elevators make the stations ADA compliant. This project was a pilot project for MTA's Design for the Environment program. Sustainable design features include daylighting and natural ventilation in the control house rotunda, lighting controls and energy-saving mechanical systems.
