Sugar Hill Development Ribbon Cutting

Friday, November 21st was the dedication of the new Sugar Hill Development in Harlem. The 191,00 square foot building offers affordable housing along with a mixed education and cultural arts center.

Sugar Hill Development

Designed by architect David Adjaye, the Sugar Hill Development boasts a modern design that breaks the mold of the brick box model typically used for public housing and public schools. The rose-embossed, textured precast concrete façade pays homage to decorative motifs on buildings throughout the community and the recently established Heritage Rose District.

Adjaye’s design concept was transformed by CAD/CAM systems to create the custom floral pattern formliners. Utilizing Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, Architectural Polymers created the photo engraved formliners.
