White Plains Station is a commuter rail stop on the Metro-North Railroad’s Harlem Line, located in White Plains, New York. It is the third largest in the Metro- North Railroad system, with more than 87 million passengers riding annually. A recent state-of-the-art $95 million upgrade was completed which included new amenities such as Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity and USB chargers on benches. Metro-North’s Station began the three-year long renovation in 2018, as a way to bring a more customer friendly atmosphere for commuters. The project refurbished the station’s main entrance at the station plaza, the Main Street entrance, the Hamilton Avenue entrance, and the Mott Street tunnel. The station was remodeled with a modern aesthetic, including updated signage, a widened main lobby, new elevator, and new and improved lighting. “Upgrading our transportation hubs to meet the demands of the 21st century is fueling the economic comeback that we need today and will help keep New York’s economy competitive in the future,” said Kathy Hochul, Governor of New York.
Selux lighting was used throughout this project. M125 LED linear lighting was used on the interior and exterior throughout White Plains Station. It was the perfect choice because M125 LED offers safe, efficient lighting with its high-impact and access protection to IP65 and IK10 standards. M125 LED is made for the harsh environments and was designed with vandal, tamper, and impact resistance in mind. Selux Arca was used on the exterior, on and around the train platform. This sleek and minimalistic pathway area luminaire is equipped with the proprietary Gen5 optics, giving the station path a comfortable appearance and optimal spreading of light.
