CARE’s 350 West 49th Street Apartments
Ninety-Six New Affordable Housing Apartments in the Clinton District of Manhattan
CARE’s Apartment Building at 350 West 49th Street was originally constructed prior to 1903 and therefore designated New York City Old-Law Tenement Building. As part of an agreement between the developer and the City Planning Commission the building was scheduled for renovation however there was a delay due to a hold-out tenant. Finally, in the early 1990’s Ting + Li Architects was awarded the project feasibility study. The scope of work includes complete demolition and design of all components except for the exterior masonry walls, roof replacement, new mechanical/electrical /plumbing systems, bathroom design, kitchen design, and window replacement. Due to the quality of TLA’s feasibility study CARE also awarded construction administration service as part of our services. As a result, and despite complex tenant issues, the project was completed on-time with less than 4% cost change to the original design.
