Perkins + Will to Design $1B LEED Silver Police Academy in Queens

Perkins + Will will design the NYPD’s new $1 billion, LEED Silver Police Academy, to be located in College Point, Queens.

Earlier this week, the Department of Design and Construction and the New York City Police Department selected Perkins + Will to design the NYPD’s new $1 billion Police Academy, which will be located in College Point, Queens. T

he project will seek at least a LEED Silver rating from USGBC and will consolidate the NYPD’s existing Academy in Manhattan and other facilities in the Bronx and Brooklyn across a 35-acre site that currently serves as the city’s largest auto impound. The new Academy will feature a firing range, 450,000-square-foot physical training area, 250 classrooms, and a 100,000-square-foot “tactical village” that will include mock street scenes, subway cars, and a bodega.

The NYPD hopes to break ground on its ambitious plans by the fall of 2009 after the city’s land review process (ULURP), which could be lengthy given the project’s scale and scope.
