On May 3, our design team joined Home Leasing, Eagle Star Housing, and state and local officials to celebrate the ribbon cutting for Liberty Square Apartments in Batavia, NY. The affordable housing community starting welcoming residents in December 2021.
The new four-story building offers 55 affordable studio, one- and two-bedroom units, with 28 apartments set aside for supportive housing for homeless veterans. In addition to fully furnished apartments, Veterans are provided household supplies. Six units are fully adaptable for people with mobility impairment and three units are equipped for people with audio or visual impairment. There is also a community room, fitness center, management offices, service provider offices and ancillary spaces.
The project received funding through New York State Homes and Community Renewal, Federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits, and the Supportive Housing Opportunity Program.
SWBR provided architectural design services for the project.
