Fabria Houses, New Construction

Fabria Houses, developed in concert with NYCHA, provides 65 units of low-income housing in two new buildings (37 units) and two rehabs (28 units) over a four-block radius in the lively neighborhood of the East Village. Featured here are the two newly constructed buildings.

Architecturally, the new buildings play on the proportions of neighboring tenement facades and heights, complimenting the character of the street.

Attractive, low maintenance and sustainable materials are featured in lobbies, public areas and apartments. Entry lobbies, full of natural light and air, are on axis with rear gardens, making them both visually and physically accessible.

Balconets on rear and front windows allow families to engage both the gardens and street of this active neighborhood.

The buildings were funded based on standards of sustainability and energy efficiency by DHCR. High efficiency boilers, Energy Star appliances and low-E glass windows are used throughout.
