The Chelsea NYCHA Proposal:
New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA), Related Companies and Essence Development propose a plan to demolish and rebuild the existing buildings on both Chelsea NYCHA campuses. All tenants would be provided a new home. The plan also calls for interim rehab work. Under this proposal, new construction on the campus begins with NYCHA replacement housing. Existing NYCHA tenants are moved into new, permanent housing as new buildings are built to prevent temporary relocation for all residents. However, some tenants may be relocated during interim rehab work. As a new building is built, NYCHA residents are then transferred into that new building so the old building can be replaced, and rebuilt.
