The city’s Department of Design and Construction tasked the Bjarke Ingels Group to design a new three-story station for New York City Police Department’s 40th Precinct, and now the Architect’s Newspaper has the project’s reveal. The new station will be located at 561-585 St. Ann’s Avenue, currently a vacant parcel on the corner of East 149th Street, in Mott Haven. The 59-foot-tall facility will measure 43,500 square feet and will feature a central indoor atrium, a green roof, and a community meeting room. The project will also include the redesign of a triangular parking lot immediately to the north. Starr Whitehouse Landscape Architects is leading the site design work. Completion is expected in 2020.
