NEW YORK CITY HOUSING AUTHORITY
RED HOOK HOUSES - SANDY RESILIENCY
& RENEWAL PROGRAM
In 2012, Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc on the New York City
Housing Authority's (NYCHA) Red Hook Houses and the more than
6,000 residents living in its 28 buildings. With floodwaters reaching up
to five feet, the storm caused significant damage to the boiler plants and
mechanical and electrical systems due to basement flooding, affecting
heat, hot water, and power service. The damage left residents with no
access to basic necessities, including food and medical assistance, for
weeks. Multiple community workshops helped develop a masterplan
that makes the area less vulnerable to natural disasters like Sandy, and
improves the sustainability and condition of the buildings and surroundings.
New York City Housing Authority Red Hook Houses - Sandy
Resiliency & Renewal Program includes two above ground freestanding buildings to house boilers, and 14 utility pods that will be dispersed
throughout the development to provide heat and electricity. Decentralizing infrastructure protects against future storms by decreasing the
likelihood of widespread utility failure. To provide floor protection to
buildings and entrances, raised areas called "Lily Pads," located within
the internal courtyards between buildings, will create permanent flood
barriers to support a secure and porous campus. Typically, these areas
will be accessible by stairs and ramps and have playgrounds and green
spaces on top; during flooding, passive barriers and a floodwall will protect the areas until the water recedes. These areas will also transform the
experience of residents and guests by providing vibrant social spaces.
