Event to mark construction of city homes

Rochester Business Journal
August 5, 2014

The first four single-family homes under construction on vacant lots in the city of Rochester will be celebrated Wednesday during a groundbreaking event at 4 Straub St.

The four houses are being built on Straub and Pierpont streets between Lexington and Driving Park avenues. They are scheduled to be ready for occupancy in December, officials said.

The Neighborhood Builders program is supervising the construction and is to oversee the building of additional affordable homes in several neighborhoods for developer Greater Rochester Housing Partnership.

Financing from the state Affordable Housing Corp., the state Office of Community Renewal Urban Initiatives and the city of Rochester will be used to ensure the homes are affordable for eligible buyers, officials said.

The homes will have three bedrooms and sell for $69,900 to first-time homebuyers who meet income requirements, officials said.

Greater Rochester Housing Partnership is funding the construction done by Atlas General Contractors LLC in Webster.
