Kick-starting a Year of Hopes, Dreams and Brighter Futures for Low-Income New Yorkers


Raw winter weather has done nothing to slow progress on Lynn’s Place, as Unique People Services’ first affordable housing complex continues to come to life.

Nearly 30 workers are collaborating on this monumental team effort – from carpenters and plumbers, to electricians and masonry crews.

To date, Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) color coat finish is nearing completion at the building’s courtyard facades. North and east side façade insulation, partition framing (on all floors) and mechanical/electrical/plumbing (MEP) roughing are also being completed.

Elevator equipment (e.g. platforms and cab frames) is already complete and operating, with temporary power provided by Procida Construction Corporation at no additional cost. Blockwork at elevator doors, as well as gypsum board fireproofing (at ventilation duct shafts) remain ongoing.

Field reports have Lynn’s Place 100% on target for its September 22nd completion date. With every meeting, we grow more excited as our dream for improving the lives of low-income residents inches closer to reality!
