Reliance Federal Savings & Loan Assn.
Address: 233-15 Hillside Avenue
Neighborhood: Queens Village
Architect: Meltzer, George J.
Current Status: Extant
Award: Bronze Plaque for Rehabilitations and Alterations
The rehabilitation of this bank structure was done to address “serious deficiencies in design” according to the Queens Chamber program. The original bank was built in 1960 before zoning in the area changed so the bank management was limited in what changes they could make and were unable to extent the building substantially. Instead the space was opened up and stone walls and large glass windows with bronzed aluminum trim were used to frame the exterior.
