New York Police Department 121st Precinct Station House
Text by Rafael Viñoly Architects
NEW YORK (October 26, 2009) - Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg joined New York Police Department Commissioner Ray W. Kelly, Department of Design and Construction Commissioner David J. Burney FAIA along with Staten Island elected officials on Thursday to celebrate the groundbreaking of Rafael Viñoly Architects’ 121st Police Precinct Station House. This building will function as the headquarters of Staten Island’s first new police precinct in decades. Responding to the borough’s rapidly growing population, the 121st Police Precinct will fill the need of an expanded law enforcement presence, cutting response times and relieving the workload of existing precincts. The 121st Precinct Station House is a model for green design, as it seeks to achieve LEED Silver certification. It will be the first police facility in the city so designated under Mayor Bloomberg’s PlaNYC 2030 sustainable design initiative.
