This new 2-story industrial building has high ceilings, built-in cooler storage, showrooms and offices. The building is located in the special College Point district near Flushing bay. It has gone through several versions through the years of planning.
The current design is fine-tuned to keep all the soil backfilled after site excavation to minimize the environmental impact and reduce cost. The structure of the building is optimized to achieve economic solution for long span steel structure on pile foundation. Composite metal panels with insulation were selected as the exterior cover of the building. The site was carefully planned to suit the multifunction of the building.
