This ten-story inclusionary housing project on an Upper East Side narrow lot hosts one apartment per floor and is designated for low-income families. The units are assigned as “homeownership” - this means that tenants can pay rent towards ownership of their apartments. 

The design team lead by Kossar+Garry Architects worked with a very limited budget, on a difficult narrow site to design this apartment building. The project had to be approved by the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).

The structural system consists of cast-in-place reinforced concrete flat slabs supported by reinforced concrete columns and shear walls bearing on a reinforced concrete mat and footings. Several different designs and variations were produced to help the developers maximize their budget.
