1, 2, 3 & 4 HAVEN PLAZA, NEW YORK, NY
At Haven Plaza, CTA performed a moderate rehabilitation of the 4-building, 371-unit residential complex built. Phase I of the rehabilitation addressed the buildings’ exteriors and included new roofs, masonry rehabilitation, and waterproofing. The complex’s garage roof, an extensive green roof that doubles as an outdoor plaza, was re-waterproofed as well.
Phase II primarily focused on Haven Plaza’s interior rehabilitation and renovation. The lobbies and common spaces were redesigned, the kitchens and bathrooms in all the apartments were replaced, a new community room was designed, and previous management offices were converted into two additional apartments. Additionally, the outdoor plaza landscape was redesigned and re-landscaped.
Since then, new stairs that connect the street level with the central plaza have been designed, as well as replacement custom metal railings and a new accessible ramp. The new stairs feature curved treads and cantilevered landings to create a “floating” effect. We also had the plaza wall located at Haven Plaza’s north townhouses rebuilt.
