NYPD MOUNTED HQ

AT THE BASE OF THE “Z” SHAPED MERCEDES HOUSE BUILDING, TWO CONCRETE CIRDERS WERE DESGINED TO SUPPORT A 60 FT X 70 FT COLUMN FREE SPACE FOR HORSES TO LIVE IN THAT WOULD MIMIC A BARNSTABLE. THIS REQUIRED AN INTRICATE AND EXTENSIVE VENTILATION SYSTEM, A MODERN HAYLOFT, AS WELL AS DESIGNATED SPACE FOR A LARGE FOOD SUPPLY TO MINIMZE DELIVERIES AND HORSESHOE SMITHY. THE MOUNTED UNIT TRANSFERRED ITS HEADQUARTERS, A DOZEN HORSES, AND AROUND 20 OFFICERS INTO THE NEW SPACE MAKING A SUCCESSFUL PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP. TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, A LARGE HORSE CORRAL WAS ENGINEERED AT THE FRONT OF THE STABLES TO ALLOW THE PUBLIC VIEWING OF THE HORSES THROUGH A CLERESTORY OF SMALL WINDOWS ALONG THE SIDEWALK.

FEATURED PROJECT

HUNTERS POINT PARCEL C

"New development requires fresh space, and when it comes to affordable housing in New York City that space is often relegated to far-off corners in remote, unconnected sites. However, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg implemented an affordable housing initiative focused on community interaction, and prime real estate, starting with a competition to develop city-donated land at Hunter’s Point Parcel C in Long Island City---a bid ODA won. The biggest affordable housing project New York City has completed in the past 40 years, the 1.4 million square feet of residential and retail space is slated to provide 1,400 apartments as well as a school for local kids."
