Among the New York City Housing Authority’s current major capital projects are the A. Phillip Randolph Houses at 114th and Frederick Douglass. They are major capital projects because they are “comprehensive renovations to the interior apartments and exterior of buildings.”
Randolph Houses: Constructed in the early 1900s, the A. Philip Randolph Houses in Harlem encompass 36 walk-up buildings, containing 455 apartments. Randolph Houses are currently undergoing a $60 million capital renovation, which will rehabilitate all the apartments and bring them up to current standards. The project will be accomplished in two phases. In the first phase, scheduled for completion in December 2007, 16 buildings will be completely refurbished. Phase Two, scheduled for completion in December 2009, will modernize the remaining 20 buildings.
