Original message:

Beginning Monday, June 12, we will be conducting façade renovations at the Georgian building. This work is in accordance with Local Law 11, a New York City law that requires property owners to inspect all exterior walls of commercial and residential buildings higher than six stories every five years. During this time, there may be increased noise, dust, and/or occasional disruptions. We currently anticipate the façade renovations will be completed November 2017.

Highlights of what to expect:

  • Sidewalk bridges along the building’s exterior on 168th and 169th Streets will be installed beginning during the week of June 19 and will remain in place for the duration of the project.
  • Contractors will perform work from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • There will be periods of time in which select window air conditions cannot be in operation due to window lintel repair; we will communicate directly with affected occupants prior to the repair work commencing.

While the renovations are in progress, please keep window shades closed completely for privacy. There will also be periods of intermittent construction-related noise.

We apologize for any inconvenience this work may cause and appreciate your patience as we work to enhance the medical center.
