Global Design Strategies NY (GDSNY) has completed the facade and repositioning design for a 42-unit Housing project in East Harlem, New York.

The project developers engaged GDSNY to design the renovation of the pre-war building, revitalizing the building exteriors, as well as the entrance and landscaping, of this well established Harlem community. Renovations for the broader project include comprehensive fa├žade and roof insulation and waterproofing, a major infrastructure modernization, interior renovations to all apartments as well as a substantial landscape and hardscape revitalization, and project rebranding.

The project will include mural artwork by local artists, that is curated by GDSNY.

Originally built in 1900, this mid-rise elevator building is 6 stories tall and contains 42 apartments. In collaboration with OCV Architects.
