Newly Completed Projects Across NYC
Second Avenue
One of the first completed buildings since the opening of the Second Avenue Subway, C+GA's Second Avenue Apartments provides spacious homes for lower income residents of Yorkville. In a neighborhood transforming from an  the influx of new development and the proximity to the subway, the Second Avenue Apartments provide local amenities while preserving diversity for the community. The six and  eleven story mixed-use development features twenty-eight affordable rental units above a community facility and commercial space along the avenue. 

Third Ave

Third Avenue and Little Scholars

C+GA recently completed this innovative eight-story, mixed-use development, with thirty rental housing units and an Early Development Center.
