Project Start: Q4 2019
Anticipated Completion: Q1 2024
• Installation of floodproofing vents at buildings 4 (100 Centre Mall), 9 (129 Lorraine), 10 (831 Hicks)
o The flood vents are part of the strategy at Red Hook to help limit the likelihood of flood damage during a storm
• Construction of lily pad passive flood protection measures throughout the site
o The flood protection measures will help keep water out of flood-prone areas during a storm
• Removal of scaffolding by the utility pods throughout the site
• Continued construction of all utility pods (small buildings) including but not limited to installation of new doors and frames
• Installation of façade panels, staircases, walls, and ramps in the East Plant
o The new East Plant will hold standby generators and boiler equipment above the flood level to provide full backup power and heat to NYCHA Red Hook buildings
• Installation of site lighting posts and conduit throughout the site
o The new site lighting will be brighter and more energy efficient
• Basement floodproofing work throughout the site to protect flood-prone areas
o All basements except for building 6 (62 Mill Street) are expected to be completed by the end of 2023
• [Non-Sandy work activity] Local Law 11 façade inspection and repair work at building 25 (11 Lorraine)
o Sidewalk sheds have been installed by this building and will remain until the work is completed
• Insulation of underground pipes at Dwight Street
• [Non-Sandy work activity] Local Law 11 façade inspection and repair work at buildings 20 (442 Columbia) and 21 (458 Columbia)
• Tree and shrub plantings throughout the site
• Construction of new trash area at the West Pod by building 1W (135 Richards)
• Over 40 Red Hook stakeholders completed NYCHA’s survey to help determine the types and locations of new trees and shrubs that will be planted throughout the campus as part of the ongoing Sandy resiliency work (complete survey results attached)
o The survey was promoted via flyer postings in every Red Hook NYCHA building and around the neighborhood, e-mail blasts, two community meetings, and the Red Hook Hub.
o The results of the survey will help inform the final planting plan
• NYCHA’s Pest Management Department has been conducting regular visits to Red Hook to install and/or service bait stations, collapse rodent burrows, and close gaps in building basements to reduce the rodent population on site.
o Additionally, the Sandy contractor has continued to install and/or service bait stations, collapse rat burrows every week, and clean the construction work zones daily.
