Whitney Young Manor

System improvements included elevators, boilers, electrical, plumbing, intercom, a high-tech energy management system, and a DVR security camera system with 180 cameras throughout the buildings. Common areas such as the lobbies and laundry room received much needed upgrade and replacements. Exterior improvements included building fa├žade repair and pointing, new roofs, keyless door entry at the main entrances, and the entire parking structure. The building also received a state-of-the-art computer room.
