Renovations are underway on a group of historic residential buildings in Harlem.

The Randolph Houses include 36 landmarked buildings on West 114 Street.

As part of the first phase, 22 vacant buildings on the south side of the street are being renovated.

"Obviously, this is in a place where there could be other kinds of investment, market-rate investment for households with higher incomes, but this is a commitment to affordability and a commitment to this particular community, which is really diverse in terms of the different economic brackets here," said Bill Frey, senior director of preservation at Enterprise. "But this is a commitment to former residents and to the mission of the housing authority and to long-term affordability."

The project will create more than 300 affordable and public housing units.
