Harbour Point Gardens Update: Code Enforcement Finds Four Additional Apartments Fit for Occupancy

TROY, N.Y. — After inspection by Troy’s Bureau of Code Enforcement this morning, the City of Troy announced that four additional units at the Harbour Point Gardens Apartments have now been deemed to be safe, fit, and reasonably in compliance with the minimum standards for occupancy as outlined in the 2020 NYS Property Maintenance Code. 


Specifically, the following units were found to be safe, fit, and reasonably in compliance with the minimum standards for occupancy as outlined in the 2020 NYS Property Maintenance Code: 

 

  • 140A, 

  • 140B, 

  • 142A, and 

  • 170D 


If you were living in one of these apartments and your landlord has not reached out to you already, the City of Troy encourages you to reach out to your landlord to ask about next steps. 


Important records related to the evacuation of units at the Harbour Point Gardens apartments, including engineering documents prepared by LaBella Associates, Code violations, issued tickets and more, may be accessed, viewed and downloaded on The City of Troy’s unique Harbour Point Gardens landing page, at troyny.gov/hpg.


Tenants were evacuated from their apartments on June 22, 2023 after the failure of Harbour Point Gardens and Lexington Properties to address dangerous bowing brick veneers on several buildings, which posed imminent risk of undue harm to residents and visitors. Since then, the City has worked to facilitate and encourage the rehabilitation of the affected units so that families may return home.


The Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York maintains a Legal Line, which may be reached at (833) 628-0087. They serve eligible low-income people in Northeastern New York and may be visited online at lasnny.org.
