It took 10 years and about $4 billion, nearly twice the anticipated cost, the World Trade Center Transportation Hub’s Santiago Calatrava-designed Oculus is set to open in early March, Politico New York citing two people with knowledge.

The structure has been plagued by cost overruns, the price having just about doubled.

The official World Trade Center website says it will deliver “unmatched mass transit, ” connecting 11 subway lines (A, C, E, J, Z, R, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5), the PATH system, several MTA bus routes, ferry service, and parking garages.

Cost overruns and other delays have not been easy on Calatrava. “I have been treated like a dog, ” he told the Wall Street Journal.

The mall that’s set to occupy the Oculus’ base, has been delayed by leaks.

The new Eataly outpost will open in the spring.
