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. The double-skin façade wraps the curtainwall with custom, perforated, metal fins to vertically articulate the massing and mitigate sun exposure. 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. Dattner Architects designed the project in association with WXY Architecture + Urban Design.
