If it’s true that good things come to those who wait, the much-delayed Fulton Street Transit Center promises to be incredible. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced on Monday that the long-awaited Brooklyn transit hub is finally set to be opened next month. After multiple setbacks, the $1.4 billion structure, designed by Grimshaw Architects, is slated to be inaugurated on November 10th.

Construction on the ultra-modern glass and metal structure began in 2005, but has been besieged with problems since the beginning. But despite ongoing funding issues, burgeoning costs and technical glitches, the massive 26,000-square-foot project has persevered. Once operational, the hub will connect 10 subway lines and house a veritable underground city of retail shops and eateries.

Although the MTA has officially announced the date of the opening of the transportation hub itself, those looking to enjoy a bit of shopping fun will have to wait. The underground shops and restaurants won’t be open until a later date.
