CAPITOL HALL

Capitol Hall is a 10-story supportive housing residency located on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. This 1914-era building initially housed families in four apartments per floor.

The large units were transformed into single room occupancies (SROs) and today consist of 202 units which house men and women vulnerable to homelessness because of their age, income, or disability.

OCV spearheaded a 3-year, tenant-in-occupancy construction plan which rehabilitated and upgraded the existing arrangement of shared bathrooms and kitchens to one in which each unit is provided with its own private kitchette and bathroom. Tenants now enjoy the private use of basic facilities with continued access to community spaces.

Offices and community spaces were also improved and expanded. Through a clever repurposing of the building’s interior courtyard, space which was once used as trash storage was transformed into a new community room with a Velux skylight roof.

Two new elevators and a trash compactor and chutes were installed, public halls were outfitted with new ceramic tile floors and bases, and the existing mosaic tile in public spaces was repaired.
