Project Spotlight

Green Retrofit at 135th Street
Harlem, NY


The scope of this capital improvement program consists of unit renovations and base building improvements focused on improving energy efficiency, enhancing tenants’ quality of life, and improving indoor air quality. The project is the first in the nation to benefit from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)’s Green Retrofit Program using federal stimulus funds. Additional renovation funding is provided by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD).

Retrofits will include EnergyStar refrigerators, replacement of 32 old boilers with 10 high-efficiency boilers, installation of thermostatic control valves in each apartment to give tenants temperature control, rooftop solar photovoltaic panels, formaldehyde-free kitchen cabinets, recycled-material kitchen counters, EnergyStar ceiling fans, compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) fixtures and bulbs, double-pane argon-filled low emissivity (low-e) windows, insulated exterior doors, low-flow fixtures, shower heads and toilets, linoleum flooring to replace vinyl tile, wood floor installations using Forest Stewardship Council (FSC)-certified wood, and non-toxic paints, adhesives and sealants throughout.
