The Gerald J. Carey Gardens development includes 3 existing high-rise residential buildings on 3 adjacent city blocks in Coney Island, Brooklyn. The 15-story buildings have a total of 682 apartments. One of the residential towers shares a lot with a Community Center. Though the buildings systems had survived previous storms, the Superstorm Sandy tidal surge caused unprecedented damage. Nelligan White is conducting a comprehensive renovation of the buildings including the addition of a new elevated boiler plant and utilities system. A new elevated Community Center will also double as a command center during adverse events. Improvements to storm water management, landscaping, security and site lighting are also being made.
