A major capital project several years in
the making is well underway at a longstanding
Queens co-op where everything
from apartment windows, air conditioners
as well as apartment and lobby
video intercoms are getting an upgrade
in phase 1 of a multi-phase program.
At Windsor Park, a 1,830-unit complex
in Bayside, the $22 million project
is aimed at modernizing the buildings
and improving the quality of life
for residents, said Larry Kinitsky, president
of the board of directors.
Th e best part, Kinitsky said, is that
the board was able to secure the funding
for the project by refi nancing the
property’s mortgage without any additional
carrying costs rather than asking
the shareholders to contribute.
Residents are extremely receptive to
all the improvements currently underway.
But equally as important is the
process is easy for them.
Kinitsky explained that the board
was extremely thorough in planning
the project, taking into consideration
how each aspect would impact the day
to day lives of the residents. To insure
a fl awless implementation the board
retained the services of PMG, one of
the premier project management companies
in New York.
