Zerega Avenue EMS Station #3
The new EMS Station #3 is the first to implement the FDNY’s new comprehensive EMS program, improving response capability with more vehicles, staff and support spaces. With the landscape of the roof as a fifth façade for the adjacent high rise residential tower, the design introduces FDNY vehicles into the neighborhood along with sustainable goals including reduced storm water, porous paving and captured storm water reuse, utilizing planning and material strategies for natural ventilation and day lighting.
