SWBR completes work on Son House Apartments

Rochester Business Journal
April 1, 2014

SWBR Architects & Engineers P.C. has completed work for Son House Apartments in Rochester, the first support residence in the state for homeless, high-cost Medicaid recipients with medical or behavioral disabilities.
 
SWBR served as lead architect on the $4.1 million project on Joseph Avenue. It handled all architectural, structural and interior design. The three-story building includes 21 one-bedroom and 600-square-foot rental units. Occupancy at the site began last October.

Providence Housing Development Corp. is the management company for the residence. The affiliate of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Rochester is responsible for the development and management of quality, affordable housing for low-income seniors, families and special-needs populations within the diocese.

“The SWBR team is honored to be part of the Son House Apartments project that will give second chances to those who have fallen on hard times,” said Joe Gibbons, SWBR principal, in a statement. “Through this project, our team has helped improve the quality of life of formerly homeless New Yorkers, providing both shelter and support.”
