The 9G Buildings Change this

1 of 6

Description Change this

The 9G buildings were slated for demolition by the city. Six partially occupied town houses were rehabilitated and converted into subsidized Co-ops giving previous tenants the first opportunity for purchase. Each floor, originally divided into two very small studio units, was transformed into an ample floor-through one bedroom apartment. Floor structure, stairs, building systems, windows and roof were replaced throughout, and new kitchens, baths, finishes and wood flooring were provided. One building is within the New York City Landmark district where the ornate brownstone and brick façade, brownstone stoop, and cornices were restored. This project contributes to the vitalization of the neighborhood while 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.
