Project Description

The Sutton, a $37 million development, is the second component of the City of New York’s Bradhurst Urban renewal plan for which D+B served as lead developer. Residential units are fully occupied, and the building’s 3,750 square feet of commercial space has been leased to St. Luke’s–Roosevelt Hospital Center.

The Sutton includes amenities such as private terraces, underground parking for 44 cars, 24-hour security, a fitness area, a community room, and a common landscaped courtyard. The development of the site posed special engineering challenges because the building is located directly above the underground Harlem River, necessitating the driving of 90-foot piles deep into the Manhattan bedrock to ensure structural stability.
