New Elevators Slated For Arverne Houses
All 14 elevators in Arverne Houses, located on Beach Channel Drive between Beach 54 and 56 streets, will be renovated under a $1.6 million contract recently approved by the New York City Housing Authority Board.
"This is a major undertaking that will result in state of the art equipment throughout the entire development," said NYCHA Chairman John G. Martinez. "The contract calls for new cabs, controllers, doors, hoistway wiring and traveling cables among other features."
The contract was awarded to Knudson Elevator Corporation and should take about 14 months to complete.
Arverne Houses, completed in 1951, has 418 apartments in seven buildings.
