This has been an exciting and busy summer for your Facilities team. We have been repairing, painting, cleaning and generally ensuring that everything in your room is in working order. Unfortunately, in some buildings, we ran out of time and a few items may still require work. We encourage you to submit a Work Order for any necessary repairs. We will make a determined effort to address your request(s) on a timely basis.
Residents of 600
This summer, two major renovation projects were begun at 600 W 116th St, and will continue through the fall. New windows were installed in all the student rooms, and half the tenanted apartments. Work will continue on replacing the tenants’ windows into the end of October. Local Law 11 repairs were begun and are still in progress on the 116th St façade and Northeast corner. We ask that students with rooms facing 116th St please keep their windows and blinds closed from 9 am – 4 pm to help prevent dust from migrating into rooms. This exterior repair work is expected to be completed by the middle of October.
Residents of 616
A major renovation project this summer has transformed the entrance and elevator lobbies of the building. New lighting, flooring, painting and tack boards have been installed. Many rooms have been painted and bathroom tiles grouted. In September, renovations will continue with a new project to repair the sidewalk and entrance steps in the front of the building.
Following completion of Local Law 11 facade work this past June, we discovered that the courtyard wall required additional work to prevent water infiltration. Therefore, the Local Law 11 work will continue until the necessary repairs have been completed. We ask that students with rooms facing the courtyard keep their windows and blinds closed from 9 am – 4 pm to help prevent dust from migrating into rooms. This final item of project work is expected to be completed by the end of September.
Residents of Sulzberger Hall
All residents of Sulzberger Hall should be aware that Local Law 11 exterior repairs are still in progress on the building’s Broadway façade. Repair work was suspended during move – in week but will resume again on Tuesday 9/2, 9 am – 4 pm.
All students with rooms facing Broadway are asked to keep their windows and blinds closed from 9 am – 4 pm to help prevent dust from migrating into rooms.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
