DSNY Manhattan District 1/2/5 Garage & Salt ShedVolver a la lista de Proyectos
- Spring Street, Manhattan, New York
The Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage, at the corner of Spring Street and West Street, houses three district garages for the NYC Department of Sanitation, accommodating over 150 sanitation vehicles, separate vehicle wash and personnel facilities for each district, and centralized fueling and repair facilities. A green roof softens views from neighboring buildings, protects the roof membrane, and enhances storm water retention and thermal performance. A benchmark project for NYC’s Active Design program, the garage achieved LEED Gold certification.
Rising nearly 70 feet next door, the highly visible Salt Shed structure houses 5,000 tons of salt. The Salt Shed’s faceted planes enliven the reinforced concrete enclosure. The structure tapers toward the bottom, creating more pedestrian space. The Salt Shed’s solid, crystalline form acts as a counterpoint to the diaphanous, scrim-like façade of the Manhattan 1/2/5 Garage directly across Spring Street to the north. Dattner Architects designed the project in association with WXY Architecture + Urban Design
