MC1 is a publicly commissioned homeland-security facility for the Fire Department of New York City in partnership with the Hudson River Park Trust. The project will house Manhattan's last remaining fireboat company. Located on Pier 53 on the Hudson River, the project is an agglomeration of varied programs, including an existing recycling depot and a future park.
Probably best known for its role in the Ghostbusters movies, the firehouse for Fire Hook & Ladder Company 08 is also among New York City’s oldest — at 102 years old — and its most decorated. CDR Studio was responsible for architectural design and construction management for the rehabilitation and overall interior renovation, including replacement of the main floor and installation of a new housewatch, kitchen and bathrooms.
