The MTA has released a request for proposals seeking a developer to bring retail and dining to Grand Central Madison, officials said Tuesday. 

The agency has been attempting to recruit businesses to fill the concourse at the Long Island Rail Road terminal in midtown Manhattan.

The Grand Central Madison space will feature retail and dining that is separate from the Grand Central Terminal retail run by the MTA’s other commuter railroad, Metro-North.

“We really want to increase the convenience and the excitement of this facility with innovative shops, restaurants and brands, like we have been pretty successful with upstairs," MTA Chairman and CEO Janno Lieber said at a news briefing. "Grand Central Terminal, old Grand Central, is in many ways the model."

This past January marked one year since the MTA opened Grand Central Madison, giving Long Island Rail Road riders direct access to Manhattan’s east side.
