121st Police Precinct Station House Wins Civic Excellence Award

Viñoly is being honored with an award from the Society of American Architects, New York Council (SARA NY) – an Award of Excellence in Civic Architecture for the 121st Police Precinct Station House, located in Staten Island, New York. This award is bestowed annually to a project that makes and important contribution to the public realm of New York City.

“Sitting between a quiet residential district and a heavily commercial street – Richmond Avenue, the Committee (SARA NY) particularly impressed at how the project both responded to the neighborhood with extreme sensitivity while creating a remarkable architectural statement in the awe-inspiring 100′ cantilever,” said Keith Montgomery Lucas, President of SARA NY. “This along with the irregular site and requirements for sustainable design that were challenged in this project clarify that public works can and should set the standard for design in our City.”
