Hargrave House

Like the Hamilton, the Hargrave was an old Manhattan hotel converted into a modern moderate-rent residence for the elderly. In 1975, Hargrave Associates was formed to acquire the Hargrave House Hotel, using financing from the City of New York.

Located near the corner of Columbus Avenue and West 71st Street, Hargrave House was designed by the architectural firm of Schwartz & Gross and built in 1913 as a neo-Renaissance style hotel.

Hargrave’s 112 apartments are restricted to persons who are 62 years of age and older and earning less than 80% of Area Median Income (AMI), which as of January 2018, must not exceed $58,450 for a single person or $66,800 for a couple. 

Renovations

With $6.3 million in acquisition and capital financing from the NYC Department of Housing Preservation and Development and the Community Preservation Corporation, Project FIND was able to buy out all eleven limited partners and transfer the Hargrave property to not-for-profit ownership in 2002. Simultaneously, Project FIND embarked on a $3.5 million capital improvement program. This included the expansion of life-safety services, the replacement of passenger elevators, windows, roofing and boilers, as well as the re-pointing of the entire façade. The renovation was completed in 2002.

Special Features

The residents of Hargrave House have access to social work services, funded by the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance.

The Hamilton Senior Center Annex is located on the ground floor of the building and is accessed through a separate entrance. The Annex space focuses on the health and wellness programs of the Hamilton Senior Center.
