Times Square recently underwent a redesign to reflect its cutting-edge spirit, provide additional public space for pedestrians and events, and transform "the bowtie" into a world-class piazza.

The Times Square Transformation was a three-phase capital project that began in 2012 and was completed in December 2016. Each phase of construction included a range of complex operations: utility work by Con Edison, updates to city infrastructure, the installation of new infrastructure to facilitate events, and surface work.

The Times Square Alliance collaborated with Snøhetta and the NYC Department of Transportation on the plans for the transformation.
