Residents of Historic Front Street in Lower Manhattan will have to wait until May 31 to return home following Hurricane Sandy, Curbed reported. Moreover, the scheduled return keeps being delayed — the previous date to reopen the storm-damaged building was May 1.

Repairs are set to come in three phases, with the first phase — which covered the removal of heating and cooling units and piping — is already complete. The second phase includes the installation of new heating and cooling units, which a building memo said should begin this month. As for the third phase, work will cover patching and painting. Each phase will require several weeks of work.

The repairs will strive to make the buildings “more resilient to future extreme weather events as well as more energy efficient,” the memo said.

Work is also underway on restoring electrical panels and systems, and sheet-rocking walls in the lobbies and common areas.

Historic Front Street is located on a stretch of Front Between Beekman Street and Peck Slip. The project includes the restoration of 11 18th century buildings and three new buildings. [Curbed]Zachary Kussin
