AIA NY Building Tour: City Harvest's Cohen Community Food Rescue Center

2022 AV60 038

Join Ennead and AIA New York for a one-hour tour of City Harvest's Cohen Community Food Rescue Center.

The Cohen Community Food Rescue Center in Sunset Park, Brooklyn embodies City Harvest’s “neighbors helping neighbors” philosophy by bringing thoughtful, modern design to New York City’s food systems and allowing the organization to rescue, store and distribute twice as much food across the five boroughs. Originally a repair shop for the Brooklyn Rapid Transit trains from 1890 to 1916, City Harvest’s new headquarters underwent a dramatic transformation led by Ennead, transitioning the historic building into an energy-efficient, bright, inspiring, and healthy workplace for City Harvest, where previously separate entities of the organization — its office and distribution center —are brought together and truly connected.

The Cohen Community Food Rescue Center was designed by Ennead Architects (Design Architect, Interior and Exterior), Rockwell Group (Interior Architectural Design for Event Space & Demonstration Kitchen), and Ware Malcomb (Logistics Spaces and Architect of Record).
