Progress is being made at the new 116th Precinct in Queens, as Citnalta crews drive piles and install lagging for what will be the foundation of the new 48,410 square foot building.
Elected officials and local representatives from southeast Queens broke ground on the new NYPD structure in late September 2021. The facility will be the first new precinct established in NYC since 2013 and will serve Rosedale, Laurelton, Springfield Gardens and Floral Park.
According to the Mayor’s office, the precinct is the result of decades of advocacy from committed community groups in the area, which had previously been served by just one command from Middle Village to Kennedy Airport. The new building will feature a new community room on the first floor with a dedicated entrance from the front of the building to allow members of the public to engage with the precinct.
Construction on the building is expected to be complete by January 2024.
