West 118th Street

For this project OCV reconfigured and brought up to code compliance an existing set of three contiguous, combined, five-storey walk-ups.

OCV expanded and united the three buildings under a 6th floor mansard. The addition of a new passenger elevator and a second fire egress allowed for the removal of unsightly fire escapes on the facade, transforming a patchwork of tenements into a stately building serving homeless women and children.

The interior reconfiguration turned the 34 exiting dwelling units into 35 2-bedroom units, each with its own kitchen and bath. Resident amenities include a laundry area, community room, storage area and bicycle parking at cellar-level
