What's Going On in Red Hook


NYCHA Recovery & Resilience Red Hook Houses Update

When: Feb 23-Mar 18, 2022

Where: NYCHA Red Hook Houses

To sign up for NYCHA Sandy e-mail updates please e-mail

The New York City Housing Authority is building back safer, stronger and smarter by improving structural resiliency and infrastructure protection at Red Hook Houses. NYCHA’s Recovery and Resilience Department (R&R) is pushing design boundaries in building reinforcements, storm surge protection, and infrastructure upgrades. Below, please find the latest R&R construction update for Red Hook Houses.

Power Plant & Pods Phase Percentage Completion: 39%
Project Start: Q4 2019
Anticipated Completion: Q4 2023

Ongoing Activities:
• Installation of backflow preventer equipment at the new utility pod by building 2E
• Continued construction of all utility pods including but not limited to installation of foundation piles, framing, facades, electrical equipment, and roofing
• The Sandy contractor and NYCHA’s Pest Control Department are working in tandem to limit the rodent population on site by setting up and servicing additional bait stations, regularly cleaning up debris throughout the site, cleaning basements and closing gaps in those basements
• Permanent closure of first and second-floor windows and interior finish work (e.g., plastering and painting) at apartments with windows next to the new utility pods across the site
o The closures are necessary to construct the utility pods, which will house critical electrical and mechanical equipment above the flood elevation to better protect building services during a flood event
o Approximately 90% of the required window closures have been completed
o All residents have been notified via in-person meetings, phone calls, and/or flyers
o Additional engagement is underway to residents in pending apartments
• [Non-Sandy work activity] Local Law 11 façade inspection and repair is underway at buildings 1, 23, and 24
o Sidewalk sheds have been installed in those areas and will likely remain for several months

Upcoming Activities:
• Delivery of standby generators to the East Plant on February 24, 2022
o The standby generators will provide all NYCHA Red Hook buildings with backup power during an outage
• Installation of new windows at all first-floor apartments where existing windows were removed to facilitate the construction of adjacent utility pods
• Removal of dirt piles on Lorraine Street in the coming months
