Façade Improvements

Pitkin Avenue Renaissance Program

The Renaissance Program provides matching grants to businesses within the BID to help finance improvements to building façades, storefronts, commercial spaces and residential units. Funding for the Renaissance Program comes from the New York Main Street grant program. Those wishing to apply must agree to follow the BID’s Facade Guidelines and all applications are subject to review by the BID’s Project Selection Committee.

NYC Small Business Services and BRIC TV highlighted our renovation of Edith’s Hair World and Dennis’ Place at 1701 Pitkin Avenue. Want to see more of our work? Take a look at our past projects.
