Manhattan Districts 1/2/5 Garage / Dattner Architects

SoHo's controversial Department of Sanitation Garage is progressing from structure to exterior envelope as the first layer of its double skin curtain wall begins installation on the southern facade.  The first layer of standard, unitized curtain wall will be overlaid with a second layer of custom designed, perforated metal fins to enliven a large infrastructure project with some of the glamour of SoHo and appease the detractors that live nearby.  Combined with the green roof that will cap the garage, this project is seeking certification for LEED Gold status.
