The 46 buildings that
make up Clason Point Gardens in the Bronx will be undergoing a major overhaul of
their brick exterior walls under a $1.57 million contract recently approved by
the Board of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA).
“This major renovation will rejuvenate the look of these buildings, but
more importantly, it will enhance the integrity of the structures and increase
the level of safety,” said NYCHA Chairman Tino Hernandez. “I hope the residents
will be very pleased with the results.”
The contract includes power washing the
walls and repairing the brick stucco façade. It also calls for replacing the
aluminum vents and waterproofing the buildings.
The contract was awarded to East Coast
Construction & Design Inc. and is expected to take about 2½ years to
complete once work begins.
Clason Point Gardens has 46, two-story
buildings on 17.03-acres with 401 apartments. It is home to 946 residents.
Completed in December 1941, it is boarded by Story, Seward, Noble and Metclaf
