C2 Architecture, PC was retained by WRT, LLC as an architectural teammate for Phase 2 of the redevelopment of the Schenectady Municipal Housing Authority’s Yates Village located in Schenectady, New York.
The existing public housing complex had reached the end of its lifespan. The redevelopment of Yates Village in Schenectady is a much-needed improvement for the 70-year-old, 297-apartment complex. The mixed-income community will include a range of affordability to ensure housing opportunities are available to fit the needs of existing residents as well as the affordable housing needs of the community.
WRT was involved with the first phase of redevelopment and invited C2 to be the architect of record for the second phase of the redevelopment. Phase 2 includes the addition of 38 new units, the renovation of 173 units, and renovation of the one-story Management Building.
