The Spring Street Salt Shed, a 70-foot tall facility that sits next to the Manhattan Districts 1, 2, 5 Garage, stores 5,000 tons of rock salt that is distributed throughout the city’s roads during inclement winter weather. A light color roof paver was chosen for the building to help reduce the heat island effect. The shed’s solid, crystalline surface complements the scrim-like façade of the garage.
