Albany Houses To Get New Swing Closet Doors

All 1,220 apartments at Albany Houses I and II in Brooklyn will get new plastic laminated closet doors under a $1.6 million contract recently approved by the Board of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA).

“This is part of our continuing efforts to improve the quality of life for our residents by periodically making improvements and other renovations to their apartments—from closet doors to new plumbing and from new refrigerators to bathrooms,” said NYCHA Chairman Tino Hernandez.

The contract calls for replacing 5,521 closet doors of various sizes with 3,628 new swing doors and 652 new sliding doors.

The contract was awarded to Fulton Building Company, Inc. and should take about one year to complete once work starts.

Albany Houses I, completed in 1950, has 824 apartments in six buildings bounded by Albany, St. Marks and Troy Place. The adjacent Albany II Houses, completed in 1957, has 396 apartments in three buildings.
