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.
