New Duffy Square gets go ahead.
With financing and all necessary City approvals in place, the Coalition for Father Duffy and its partners, Theatre Development Fund (TDF), and the Times Square Alliance, in cooperation with the City of New York, announced they are close to realizing their goal of a new Duffy Square that include a new TKTS Booth, new lighting and wider pedestrian pathways.
The project is moving forward on schedule and within budget due to the efforts of the project architects, William Fellows Architects and Perkins Eastman, client rep Peter Lehrer, and the project construction manager, D. Haller, Inc. Construction Management.
John Choi and Tai Ropiha of Australia developed the winning design concept for the new TKTS booth as part of an international design contest sponsored by the TDF and the Van Alen Institute in 1999.
The Coalition also announced that Bruce Meyerson will step in and assume the mantle of leadership at the Coalition, a civic organization that is collaborating on the renovation of Father Duffy Square located in the heart of Times Square. Meyerson takes over from his colleague and friend of almost four decades, the late Major General Joseph A. Healey, USA (ret.)
The Coalition also announced that General Healey's son, Andrew, has joined the Coalition's ranks and will work on the final stages of the project.
