The Meat Market at Hunts Point


The Hunts Point Cooperative Market Inc. is a cooperative owned by its member stockholders.  The company operates and maintains a facility under a long-term lease with the City of New York in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx for its member shareholders and other tenants, all of which are primarily involved in the process and distribution of meat and meat products in the tri-state area.  The facility is the largest of its kind in the world and is the major distribution hub for the New York City metro area.

The structure was designed to become a storage freezer, with special isolation details and below ground condensation requirements. To save costs, an old existing slab on piles was tested and then reused for the new facility.
