The Red Hook Distribution Center will be the first multi-story logistics facility on the East Coast.
Located in Red Hook, Brooklyn, its location allows for the fastest last-mile fulfillment possible. The 126 foot, three-floor steel structure will feature an insulated masonry block façade, OMNI Block, not commonly used in New York; punch-in windows and storefront; and post-tensioned concrete, multi-floor truck parking garage with 16 loading docks. The first floor has a 32-foot clearance, and there will be ramp access to the loading docks on the second floor. The building will include four passenger elevators and five service elevators. This expansive facility is located in a tight urban setting, so it requires planning that will maximize staging. A two-crane program will allow the building to be sequentially erected. The client has an aggressive gas milestone of February 2021 due to agency requirements. The team is developing strategies and solutions for getting sign-offs for gas services while the building is still open, including alternate MEP design and filling strategies.
