SWBR joined state and local officials on November 24 to celebrate the completion of Rochester’s Cornerstone Group’s Champlain Commons, a new 56-unit affordable and supportive housing complex in Scriba, NY.
Champlain Commons consists of seven two-story apartment buildings, with 24 one-bedroom, 16 two-bedroom and 16 three-bedroom affordable units. Seventeen units are set aside for qualified individuals who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and who will receive services and support to help them live independently. There’s also a separate community building with a kitchen, meeting space, offices, computer room, laundry facilities and a fenced-in playground.
“The completion of Champlain Commons will not only provide more New Yorkers with a safe, affordable place to call home, it will also help build stronger and better neighborhoods for Oswego County residents for generations to come,” said Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The project received funding from Homes and Community Renewal, including Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, the Supportive Housing Opportunity Program, the Homeless Housing and Assistance Program, Federal Home Loan Bank, Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative, and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
SWBR provided architectural design, interior design, and structural engineering for the project.
