Magnusson Architecture and Planning: The Sutton Mixed-Income Co-op, Harlem



Ground was broken recently for The Sutton, a 12-story, 135-unit mixed-income Harlem residential project that is the first of three new buildings in the City’s Bradhurst Urban Renewal Plan. Designed by Magnusson Architecture and Planning, and associate design architect ABS, the $40 million project on West 147 Street will offer the first affordable cooperative apartments resulting from a new lending program of New York City. The developers are Duvernay + Brooks, specialists in urban revitalization, in association with Pennrose Properties. The team was selected by the Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) and the Harlem Congregations for Community Improvement. Combining market-rate and affordable units, the family-oriented building will contain a variety of two- and three-bedroom apartments, and some 20% will have terraces or balconies. Other features will include underground parking for 44 cars, 24-hour security, a fitness center, community room, a landscaped courtyard, and approximately 3,500 square feet of retail space. Completion is slated for fall 2006.
