New York's Cooperative and Condominium Community

HABITAT

NEW YORK STATE

When an engineer examines a building or contractor starts work, they tend not to find pots of gold within the walls —they're much more likely to find hidden deteriorating. Shore Road, a 60-unit co-op built in 1927 in New Rochelle, N.Y., encountered this scenario. With two entrances — one at 485 Pelham Road, the other at 5 Circuit Road — a fairly small renovation project turned into a much larger endeavor.

The original project called for the upgrade of several balconies that sat along the front of the building. The initial contract was $100,000 for balcony repairs and a new coat of paint, but that figure has now become $350,000.

$280 million for storage of electricity for use during peak demand.
