I have been hesitate to really look closely at the low income projects, simply becasue they are not much to look at. Up until recently, developers didnt seem to know how to add style and save money at the same time. I was convinced to go take a look at the development in Spring Creek. And I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw. How beautiful and stylisth it was. Doesnt look like low income housing at all. So it just goes to show with the right architecture and creativity you can develop a beautiful project and save money at well. Kudos to the Alexander Gorlin Architects, you have outdone yourselves. For all the othere developers in the city, you may want to take a look at this work and enlist this company. Everyone deserves a wonderful place to live whether you make a lot of money or not. Great jobs guys.

Alexander Gorlin Architects have been commissioned to transform a 45-acre landfill in into a new 241,000 sq. ft town. 

As part of Mayor Bloomberg’s Housing Plan to build and preserve 165,000 units of affordable housing over ten years AGA have been commissioned to design a new town compromising 816 housing units in east New York for the Nehemiah Housing Development Corporation The strategy being explored for this project creates a new kind of ‘Nehemiah Home’ that responds in a more synthetic way to the problem of large-scale, low-cost housing development. Working with various New York City government agencies, the firm is authoring the development guidelines while producing a Master Plan for the surrounding sites slated for mixed-use and market-rate housing. In keeping with the design principles of developing sustainable and livable communities, the master planning for this site allows for various creative home design solutions within a framework which is sensitive to the overall community needs.
