Preserving Affordability: A Tour of 50 Nevins Street – 1.22

Monday, January 22, 2024
9:30 a.m.

As part of HDC’s continuing series on reuse and adaptation of historic buildings for affordable housing, join John Woelfling AIA LEED AP CPHT, Principal at Dattner Architects, for an in-depth, in-person tour and discussion about the recently completed Nevins Street Apartments. Originally designed as a YWCA by famed Brooklyn architect Frank Freeman and opened in 1913, this site has served as affordable housing for many decades. Working with the current owner, Institute of Community Living, Dattner Architects reinvigorated the building through a gut renovation and addition, while sensitively restoring the exterior. Woelfling will guide a tour around the exterior and selected interior spaces giving participants a better understanding about the complex intersection of preservation and affordability.
