Asphalt Green Athletic
and Community Center
Client: Battery Park City Authority
Architect: Hanrahan Meyers Architects
Size: 60,000 s.f.
Cost: $8.4 million
Battery Park City Authority retained Stalco as general contractor for its new community center, operated by a non-profit organization Asphalt Green. The facility is targeting LEED Platinum certification.
Located at the base of two high-rise residential towers, the community center encompasses two cellar levels and two above-street levels. The first level houses the main entrance, reception desk, lobby, cafeteria, 156-seat theater/auditorium, and an exit to a 16,000-square foot terrace, located on the roof of the lower level of the center. Asphalt Green’s second floor features a culinary center/teaching kitchen, classrooms, and offices.
The first cellar level houses a six-lane, 45-feet-wide, 76-feet-long heated lap pool, and a heated 14-feet-wide, 31-feet-long-teaching and exercise pool with a movable bottom to allow for low water for youngest and disabled swimmers or deeper water for older classes, a 90x50' basketball court featuring a movable divider wall, a 3,500-square foot fitness center, full-service locker rooms with steam room, and storage and equipment rooms. The sub-cellar houses mechanical equipment, pool systems and plumbing, and storage rooms.
The east façade features the most visually striking architectural element of the center – a 550-foot curved wall of illuminated fritted glass panels. The interior finishes include metal panel and plaster over concrete ceilings, polished concrete flooring, and sports hardwood floor inside the gymnasium.
The Stalco team coordinated all construction activities, including deliveries, materials storage, and infrastructure construction with contractors working on the residential towers above the center.
