A couple weeks ago, the planned renovations of parts of the Lincoln Center complex were approved by the area's resident board with construction on the $500 million project to begin this week. The project is supposed to transform West 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam with construction that will affect several organizations on the street. One of the biggest changes will be to Alice Tully Hall, which will undergo exterior and interior renovations. The resident board also approved conceptual designs for Josie Robertson Plaza, one of the signature areas of Lincoln Center.

The major construction on 65th Street as well as the redevelopment of the plaza were designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with FX Fowle Architects. Construction is expected to be finished in time for Lincoln Center's 50th Anniversary Celebration. If you want to keep updated on the process, there's more detail at the Transforming Lincoln Center subsite. There's even a fun video that "flies" you through the planned construction. It's complete with the din of people talking and water sounds.
