The garage/PIT structure can be approached
in one of three ways:
If Formula One has taught us anything over the years, nothing is impossible, as F1 has proven itself as the master of temporary technologies, allowing F1 to move around the globe effortlessly.
A multi-level temporary structure of modular/steel-frame construction could be erected and dismantled annually as done in The Principality of Monaco.
It is precisely this type of modular construction, which could very well be the basis for allowing the structure to remain, knowing that, if needed, the entire structure could be dismantled and removed.
A mix of steel-frame and modular construction could be
over-engineered for longevity and designed for multi-use.
The garage level could be designed with a higher ceiling
allowing it to be used by the Parks Department as an indoor sports complex for the remainder of the year. A visual example >
of how a modular multi-use garage/sports complex may appear, with a high ceiling, garage doors, and filled with temporary
Within this project's scope, it is conceivable for a conforming, permanent, multi-purpose building to be constructed at this location.
< This photo is to demonstrate how the multi-use interior could appear. Of course, the exterior would be conforming to the parks brick art-deco architecture. Or, there can be a departure towards modern architecture, which has been successfully applied at historical sites around the world including Paris, Venice, and London.
Whether a semi-permanent-modular or permanent structure, the garage would be multi-use, functioning as the garage during the race and indoor sports complex, public-use space the remainder of the year.
Such a structure would bring life to this area of the park
year-round and lead to, for example,
the Jones Beach Tennis Club.
In the scenario of a semi-permanent-modular or permanent multi-level structure, the second and third levels would be a combination of seating, hospitality suites, and offices.
The second level offices could be utilized by the Parks Department, while select spaces on the ocean-side of the structure providing beach & ocean views could be
Facing the pit-row and the circuit on the north side and the F1 Paddock on the south side, this garage/PIT complex would also have the value-added benefit of the summer wind and panoramic views the beach and Atlantic Ocean.
A semi-permanent-modular or permanent structure could also be hybrid in nature.
Whereby, the permanent multi-use garage level is engineered as a foundation, on top of which, a mix of temporary seating and finished, over-engineered modular sections constituting hospitality suites and offices, could be installed forming the second and third levels of the PIT complex, then removed after the race, assuring the structure maintains a low profile.
The many modular sections could be stored in a proposed climate-controlled building (out of sight) at the park's northernmost section or the park's secluded maintenance yard east of Zach's Bay.
