ABOUT THE BUILDING

For more than 100 years, West 135th Street Apartments has been a cornerstone of Harlem and a prime example of what innovation, collaboration, and community can do.

With their green renovation in 2010, the Apartments continue these traditions: units have been redesigned using environmentally-friendly practices in order to reduce costs for tenants, provide enjoyable living spaces, and promote a healthy lifestyle. In partnership with leading federal and city agencies, Jonathan Rose Companies has retrofitted West 135th Street Apartments to be energy efficient and preserve much needed affordable housing for the community. All 198 units at West 135th Street Apartments are reserved for families earning less than 50% of the area’s median income through the Section 8 program.

Apartments include the following green features:

  • High-quality, environmentally-friendly finishes
  • ENERGY STAR® Rated Appliances
  • Ceiling fans
  • Energy-efficient lighting
  • New, water-efficient showers and sinks
  • Large, fully operable windows that promote natural light and better ventilation
  • Low-VOC paints
