New York, NY
The Narragansett Hotel, located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, is a 100-unit SRO operated as permanent, supportive housing for medically fragile and special populations by the not-for-profit organization Housing & Services, Inc (HSI).
In 2007 we were engaged by HSI to prepare a façade evaluation report and oversee the subsequent waterproofing and exterior repairs component of a $7.1m renovation project funded by NYC Housing Preservation and Development (HPD). In 2017, ten years after the initial report, ARC undertook a second façade evaluation and oversaw all the repairs required to maintain the property in a safe condition, as required by local building code.
Restoration work included repair of individual decorative terra cotta and stone units; extensive repair to fire escape metal outriggers; lead abatement; brick restoration; replacement of marble and steel lintels; replacement of windows; and masonry cleaning.
