Crystal Window & Door Systems is playing a role in New York City’s efforts to solve its affordable housing crisis.
One of the newest buildings in the DeBlasio Administration’s Housing New York Plan to construct or preserve 300,000 units of affordable housing during the period 2014 to 2026 is 425 West 18th Street, and Crystal Windows is proud to be the fenestration supplier for the exciting new building.
Located in the West Chelsea section of Manhattan, 425 West 18th Street is part of the existing adjacent New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) 1962-era Fulton Houses complex.
The new 18-story building has 160 studio, one and two-bedroom rent-stabilized apartments.
Crystal furnished the newly constructed building with 792 quality energy efficient aluminum framed windows.
In most openings, the large windows were combined to provide apartments with dramatic 8.5 by 7 ft. nearly floor-to-ceiling vistas.
The 425 West 18th Street building is owned by NYCHA. Artimus Construction of Manhattan was the construction manager, and Gerner Kronick & Valcarel (GKV) Architects of Manhattan designed the striking building. Vista Skywall Systems of Flushing, NY was the fenestration installer.
