The Fashion Center Business Improvement District sees a future with pedestrian and bike lanes on Broadway, the possible relocation of 7th on Sixth to a rooftop space at the Port Authority Bus Terminal and the designation of the Garment District as a historic area.
FCBID executive director Barbara Randall said during the organization's annual meeting last week that the district has changed more in the last year than it has in the past decade, including more nonapparel company tenants. And with substantial commercial expansion planned on Manhattan's West Side, including possible development at the rail yards, the group is trying to prepare for the anticipated influx of newcomers.
