Co-Ops in Hamilton Heights

New York, New York

Portfolio / Housing / Affordable Housing 

We rehabilitated six partially occupied townhouses for conversion to subsidized co-ops with first-right purchase opportunity for current tenants. Each floor was originally divided into two very small studio units, so we transformed them into an ample, floor-through one-bedroom apartment. We replaced floor structure, stairs, building systems, windows, and roof throughout, and added new kitchens, baths, finishes, and wood flooring. One of the six buildings is within the New York City Landmark district, so we restored the ornate brownstone and brick façade, brownstone stoop, and cornices. The townhouses contribute to the revitalization of the neighborhood while also providing long-time residents the opportunity to invest in their own homes and communities.

The Co-Ops in Hamilton Heights were funded by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development.
