Getting to Zero: Manhattan 1/2/5 Garage & Salt Shed

Organized by: Open House New York
Venue: Tribeca
New York

This award-winning building, home to three Sanitation districts, set new standards for design excellence for DSNY facilities. It is the department’s first LEED Gold-certified building and features a double-skin façade, custom perforated metal fins that mitigate sun exposure, and a green roof that softens views from neighboring buildings, protects the roof membrane, and enhances storm water retention and thermal performance.


This tour is part of Getting to Zero: New York + Waste, a year-long series of tours and talks exploring New York City's waste system organized by Open House New York.
