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.

Please note that this tour will be divided into two groups, one beginning at 2:30 and the other beginning at 3:00. You must choose which tour you would like to attend in the above register page.
