CTA Architects P.C. has significant experience providing exterior restorations, interior renovations, and full-site moderate rehabilitations at affordable housing sites. We believe this kind of work is a core component of urban sustainability and social improvement, and we are incredibly proud of the work we have accomplished in our last decade of low-income residential service. Since we began our moderate rehabilitation of the Grand Street Guild in 2007, we have completed or are working on at least a dozen projects that have totaled well over 100 low-income residential buildings throughout the New York metro area:

  • At Grand Street Guild, we performed a moderate rehabilitation of the three-tower, 600-unit complex. Our rehabilitation included exterior restoration and interior renovation services, as well as the design of a new maintenance building. More information on the rehabilitation can be found HERE, and additional information on the new building can be found HERE.

  • Haven Plaza is a 371-unit, four-building complex where initially performed a moderate rehabilitation of the site (more information HERE). Thanks to our excellent working relationship with the client, our subsequent work has included new stairs and ADA-accessibility (more information HERE) and site-wide storm resiliency upgrades (more information HERE).

  • George Hardy & St. Francis Apartments is a four-building, 204-unit residential complex in the Bronx. More information on our moderate rehabilitation can be found HERE.

  • At 1830 Amethyst Street, we replaced the roof at this 59-unit affordable housing building. This project was made possible through funding by HUD.  

  • Christopher Court is a 160-unit apartment complex where our rehabilitation work included new windows, parapets, boilers, and elevator modernizations.

  • St. John Paul II is a 69-unit low-income apartment building for seniors. Our scope of work included an exterior restoration of the building, renovation of the public spaces and two community rooms, renovation of all handicap and non-handicap kitchens, and the build out of a new community room and office.

  • Lindsay Park is a 2,700-unit Mitchell-Lama residential complex where we are in the bidding phase for an exterior restoration of the complex. Work will include elevator upgrades, electrical and plumbing upgrades, facade repairs, and both main and bulkhead roof replacements at all seven buildings.

  • We are currently in construction of our moderate rehabilitation at Our Lady of Mercy Manor in the Bronx. The roof at the building is being replaced, and the interiors will receive new finishes.

  • Our moderate rehabilitation at General Chauncey M. Hooper Towers in Harlem began in June. Work includes exterior restoration and interior rehabilitation work, as well as the installation of a new marquee and entrance stairs at the front.

  • We are performing our moderate rehabilitation at Lefferts Heights Housing in two phases. Phase I of our work consists of an exterior restoration, roof replacement, elevator modernization, and garage restoration. Phase II, which is anticipated to begin late next year, will update the apartments’ interiors and the building’s mechanical systems.

  • CTA is working with the metro-New York affordable housing developer C.B. Emmanuel Realty, LLC on a four-building gut-rehabilitation in Harlem. This project will convert the buildings into co-operative apartments. It is financed under the Department of Housing Preservation and Development’s (HPD) Affordable Neighborhood Cooperative Program.

  • We recently submitted construction documents to the New York City Department of Buildings for a variety of exterior restoration and interior renovations throughout an 86-building cluster located in two Central Brooklyn neighborhoods. This project is with St. Nick’s Alliance, an NYC nonprofit community development organization, and made possible by New York City’s new Joint Ownership Entity (JOE) initiative.
