  EMS Station #3 is a new, sustainable facility that aims to be a good neighbor for the Castle Hill community.


 

Project Zerega Avenue EMS Station #3
Client
Fire Department of New York
Location
501 Zerega Avenue, Bronx

The mixed-use Castle Hill neighborhood of the Bronx is now home to the newest Emergency Medical Services Station in the City. Located on Zerega Avenue, EMS Station #3 was welcomed by Fire Commissioner Salvatore J. Cassano, DDC Commissioner David Burney, and several members of the community.
 
The 11,461 square-foot station, designed by Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects, features a sloping roof that will double as a green space and water catchment system for community gardeners. Other sustainable features include: natural ventilation, a solar hot water heating system, efficient building systems and equipment, and landscaped bioswales.
 
The facility will house six ambulances and one command vehicle, lockers and equipment for 150 EMS workers, as well as ground-floor administrative spaces. The FDNY hopes that this building will be a good neighbor to the community it serves, while reducing response times to the area’s emergency calls.
