Hamilton Avenue Marine Transfer Station Update

New York City Department of Sanitation's Hamilton Avenue Marine Waste Transfer Facility along the Gowanus Canal.  An early 2007 artist's rendering.
Wondrous concrete ramp under construction. A place for 10 loaded sanitation trucks to queue-up before hitting the tipping floor.  The facility is designed to accommodate 36 low sulfur burning collection vehicles per hour.

Site map.  That's the Marine Transfer Station wedged between The Home Depot's parking facility and The Department of Transportation's Asphalt Plant .
