SWBR and our clients have been recognized with an award from the Preservation League of New York State. Home Leasing’s Clinton Ave Revitalization was recognized with a 2021 Excellence in Historic Preservation Award.
Home Leasing’s Clinton Ave Revitalization project is in the Historic District of Albany’s Arbor Hill/Ten Broeck. Seventy row houses were rehabilitated into 210 affordable housing and mixed-income units, with DePaul providing support services for 40 units. Just in 2017, more than half of the units were vacant due to physical conditions and 8 of the buildings were condemned. The transformation of these buildings has been a catalyst for more investment into the community.
The virtual award reception was held on Tuesday, November 16, 2021.
