$123M Sandy Recovery Project at Redfern Houses
Work started Oct 27, 2017 on a $123-million construction project at the Redfern Houses in the Far Rockaway neighborhood of Queens, to repair damage from Hurricane Sandy and prepare the sprawling public housing community to survive future storms.
“We’re not only repairing the damage, but strengthening our buildings to withstand the impact of future storms,” said Shola Olatoye, chair and CEO of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA).
NYCHA will replace roofs, install cameras, renovate playgrounds and lighting, and build a new community center, childcare center, and boiler building (pictured). The work also includes structural reinforcement, a new heating and hot water system, and full back-up emergency power generators. All work is expected to be completed by summer of 2019.
