9th Precinct Building

The 9th Precinct's Depression-era building no longer met the needs of a 21st-century police station house. The New York City Department of Design and Construction (NYCDDC) selected STV to create a facilities program and design for a new building to replace the New York City Police Department (NYPD)’s aging station house, which is located in Lower Manhattan. The firm designed an eight-story, 39,000-square-foot replacement building with state-of-the-art security systems and energy-efficient equipment and new life safety systems.

A contemporary two-story lobby provides the interface between the police and the public. The original façade was disassembled and restored with new first floor entrances, windows and graphics, contextual with the historic nature of the building, providing a continuing contribution to the community.
