Project Detail

New York City’s Metropolitan Transit Authority’s project to revitalize the Fordham Street subway station and the adjacent area has been a multifaceted and complex process known as the new “Fordham Plaza”. Dynamic new spaces have been designed to create a welcoming and functional area for the local residents as well as the many area business people and the local Fordham University and Hospital staff and students.

Maloya was selected to help in this project by employing their Design/Build and 3D Modeling and fabrication expertise. The challenge faced by Maloya was to fabricate these large ten thousand pound planters using half inch thick steel and turning it into the graceful shapes that were required.  Using Maloya’s capabilities a series of large decorative and functional steel planters were fabricated in exact accordance with the Architect’s design vision.
