East Harlem rental gets makeover
A five-story residential building in East Harlem will be renovated, thanks to a $1.69 million construction loan from Community Preservation Corp. and the city Department of Housing Preservation and Development. The building, at 10 East 132nd Street, currently contains 15 two-bedroom units, which will be reconfigured into one studio and nine two-bedroom apartments. Other improvements in the building will include plumbing and electrical upgrades, installation of new kitchens and bathrooms, new heating systems and a new roof. There are two tenants currently living in the building, and they will be temporarily relocated during construction.
