The space that once housed the legendary nightclub The Tunnel is undergoing major renovations in preparations to turn it into the second coming of the Chelsea market.

The Terminal Stores, as it’s known is pinning its success on the newcomers brought in by the success of the High-Line park and the Hudson yards redevelopment projects that have revitalized the area.

Some parts of the building date back to 1891, the full-block building is traversed by a huge tunnel, which trains once entered from tracks on the street to load up on freight. These are the areas anyone who partied there remember as the lounge areas and dance floor. The tracks were removed from the club in 1934, when the High Line elevated railway opened a block away making those tracks obsolete.  Today, the High Line is a popular park that draws five million people a year and has transformed the area. And the owners of the Terminal Stores hope to capitalize on the renewal, by becoming an office-restaurant hub, like Chelsea Market nearby.

From 1986 to Sept. 10, 2001, the Tunnel club drew thousands of patrons on weekend nights. But it also became known for stabbings, shootings and drug deals.

That space where people danced as D.J.s played music will add seating and food kiosks, according to Waterfront NY, in a layout similar to Chelsea Market.
