More than 90 people from City & State government, banks, investors, and community members joined the development team in celebrating the kick-off of construction on our Harlem Dowling project on November 19 at 127th Street & Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd in Central Harlem. The ceremony comes after more than 4 years of our involvement on the project. Completion is expected in mid-2016.

We recently took a trip to the East Williamsburg IBZ to check in on the status of our facade panels being manufactured by Milgo Bufkin. All twenty-two full size stainless steel panels have been fabricated and are ready to be transported to the building site at 2142 Amsterdam and installed within the window openings on the front facade.
