OCV spearheaded a 3-year, tenant-in-occupancy construction plan which rehabilitated and upgraded this 10-story supportive housing residency on the Upper West Side. The existing arrangement of shared bathrooms and kitchens was converted so that tenants now enjoy the private use of these basic facilities with continued access to community spaces.
Offices and community rooms 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.
In 2016, Capital Hall was awarded ‘Outstanding Residence of the Year’ by the Supportive Housing Network of New York.
