The New York City Police Department and NYC's Department of Design & Construction has selected Rice+Lipka to design a new building situated in Pelham Bay Park on the Eastchester Bay waterfront. The project is part of the DDC's Design Excellence Program and will house educational/training and administrative programs, as well as zones for the Squad's robots, suits and other equipment. R+L is working to maximize the building's openness, capitalize on its dramatic natural setting and views, and protect the facility from future coastal storm surges by lifting the building above the surrounding landscape.11/04/13
