Brighton House

Post-Hurricane Sandy

Brighton House is a Mitchell Lama Co-Op located in the heart of Brighton Beach neighborhood. It was built in 1967 and has 18 stories with 195 units. The building was heavily damaged during Hurricane Sandy and with the help of FS Project Management embarked on a large-scale resiliency project.

Our team has experience with quickly taking on resiliency projects, but also working with New York City to finance these projects. We were able to obtain a Community Development Grant which covered the $16 Million reconstruction project. The scope of work was expansive: window and door replacement (in all units); installation of TQ3 roofing to improve storm resilience in the future; installation of new lobby doors; and the replacement of all electrical.

The property is located on the promenade making it vulnerable to flooding. To further protect the building, we built a new bulkhead structure at the promenade level, flood barriers, a CMU wall installation and fenced the building. Our team worked hard to not only reconstruct Brighton House, but to put in place a strong support system that would aid the building in the event of future natural disasters.
