Lemle & Wolff acquired these buildings under a joint venture agreement with South Bronx Community Management Company, a non-profit organization.
Acquisition and rehabilitation LIHTC were syndicated by Hudson Housing Capital LLC and JPMorgan Chase Bank and Capital One provided the credit enhancement for the tax-exempt bonds. Both buildings received Article XI tax abatements.
The construction scope of work for Hoewood Point included joist replacement, fully renovated apartments, extensive masonry repairs, all new major systems, new windows, lead and asbestos abatement, and a comprehensive energy reduction program under Enterprise Green Communities. Each building has a solar thermal system that reduces the fuels costs for the buildings.
