Lead Architects for renown projects such as Manhattan Districts 1, 2, 5 Garage and Salt Shed, the Number 7 Line Extension, 425 Grand Concourse – the on-going 24-story passive house development tin the Bronx, and the recently completed PS 186 Restoration, Dattner Architects is one of the three firms now pre-qualified for the New York City Department of Design and Construction’s (NYC DDC) Design Excellence contract.

“For over a decade, the DDC’s Design and Construction Excellence Program has been one of the City’s best tools to deliver quality public projects. This new round of DCE 2.0 firms builds on that legacy and reflects the diversity, creativity, and expertise that we need to help build our City and improve the quality of life in neighborhoods throughout our five boroughs,” Justin Garrett Moore, Public Design Commission executive director.

With the NYC DDC’s Guiding Principles – equity, sustainability, resiliency, and healthy living – establishing the framework of each project, Dattner Architects is well-suited to work with the city to “meet the challenge of creating equitable buildings and spaces that are safe, sustainable, resilient and healthy,” Dr. Feniosky Peña-Mora, Commissioner.
