Decatur Street Townhouse

This three story townhouse on Decatur Street in the Stuyvesant Heights section of Brooklyn was given a complete overhaul. Tastefully finished, each of the three multi-bedroom units was designed with an open kitchen with Silestone countertop and efficient stainless steel appliances and fixtures.

Ponte Residences Tribeca

Ponte Residences are market-rate rentals located at the northern end of Tribeca. The building blends the historical manufacturing architectural style of the neighborhood with modern interiors. Apartments are outfitted with open living-kitchen spaces, tilt windows and sweeping views.

Gates Avenue Residence

Gates Avenue Residence is green supportive housing. The project is both Enterprise Green Communities and NYSERDA certified and provides 68 sustainable, energy efficient studios in a stately five-story new construction.

Support offices and community spaces are at the ground floor, along with a terrace running across the entire rear of the building. A nice project feature is a folding wall separating the lobby lounge and the community room. This allows the two spaces to be fused together to accommodate large building or community-wide events.

Photovoltaic panels on the roof of the circulation core ensure reduced energy expenses by providing the building with green renewable energy.

Ocean Bay-Bayside Apartments

Under the NYCHA RAD program this extensive public housing development in Far Rockaway dating from the 1950s received a $150 million tenant-in-occupancy rehabilitation. 

The complex was severely flooded during Super Storm Sandy in 2012. As a result and due to its location between the Atlantic Ocean and Jamaica Bay, resiliency design represented a major component of the work as a necessary measure to secure the complex in the event of another storm.

Serviam Heights

Serviam Heights combines and connects a large new construction with the adaptive reuse of a chapel and convent on the campus of Mount Saint Ursula. It bring 187 units of affordable, independent, senior apartments to the Bronx.

The expansive sloped site provided opportunities for multiple terraced outdoor areas for seniors to garden, exercise, barbecue and gather.

Lee Goodwin Residence

Nearly three decades after its acquisition and conversion to housing for homeless women and children, OCV was brought on to rehabilitate and reconfigure the 41 units into 60 studio and one bedroom supportive housing units, each with its own bathroom and kitchen en suite. 

Among the special features of this Enterprise Green Communities project are new floor to ceiling fenestration at the community room and a transformed back alley into inhabitable outdoor space with seating and planters.

Casa del Mundo

Rising 12 floors, this NYSERDA Multi-family High Rise certified building offers studios to three bedrooms with below grade parking, a community room with adjacent outdoor terrace, and on-site laundry facilites.

Winner of the 2018 Big Apple Brownfield Award for Outstanding Supportive/Affordable Housing Development, Casa del Mundo is a stellar example of how toxic property can be successfully cleaned up to provide high quality, affordable housing.

Brooklyn Avenue Rehab

This NYC landmarked building underwent a substantial structural, mechanical and architectural rehabilitation and Landmarks Preservation Commission approved historic restoration that returned it to its original condition. 

Tribeca Duplex Penthouse

OCV designed this penthouse addition as a duplex that tops off a historic Tribeca building. This luxurious residence spans the depth of an entire NYC block and provides ample room for four bedrooms and three bathrooms on the lower level, while the upper level features a large light-flooded eat-in kitchen, separate dining area and bathroom, and a living room and office both with adjacent terraces to complete the North and South facing ends.

Dean Street Condominiums

This Habitat for Humanity-NYC project creates 15 green, affordable, two-bedroom condominiums in four buildings in Brooklyn.

Sustainable features include energy efficient lighting, fixtures and appliances, and on-site amenities such as laundry facilities and a shared yard with native plantings.
