NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s Museum of Modern Art has unveiled a revised expansion plan.
MoMa announced a preliminary design two years ago. The new plan was made public Tuesday.
The work will add about 50,000 square feet of exhibition space, enhance galleries and replace a 1939 staircase that was removed.
A plan to build a new entrance to its sculpture garden has been scrapped.
There will be a reconfigured lobby to address overcrowding.
The street-level museum store will be moved downstairs. Second-floor retail space will also be added next to the museum cafe.
The three-phase, $400 million project is expected to be completed in 2019 or 2020.
The museum will remain open throughout the construction. The first phase starts next week.
