Aesthetically, the sweeping design of the PTFE fabric membrane recalls canvas sails, while functionally the fabric provides cover for terminal patrons.

Sitting on three-quarters of an acre on a barge, the structure replaces a previous terminal, constructed in 1989 to provide ferry service between Hoboken and Battery Park City. The terminal was designed to accommodate five ferryboats simultaneously, and offers service to Jersey City, Weehawken, Hoboken and Liberty State Park in New Jersey, as well as water taxi service.

It is the largest terminal of its kind in the US.
