CDS Housing and NYS Homes and Community Renewal celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, to mark the beginning of construction of a $21.6 million, 96-unit affordable senior living community in the town of Webster.
CDS Housing Senior Living Hard Road 2, will be located at 970 and 975 Abigayle Way, and will be open to income-qualifying seniors age 55 and older, as well as frail elderly.
The Webster senior living community received $3.8 million in Housing Trust Funds, $1.2 million in low-income credit and $355,197 of New York State low-income housing tax credit from New York State Homes and Community Renewal (HCR). The project also received $200,000 from the Monroe County HOME program and $150,000 from the CDS Wolf Foundation.
The Webster senior living community will be constructed north of CDS Life Transitions’ (CDS Housing’s parent company) headquarters at 860 Hard Road and west of CDS Housing’s second senior living community, which opened in early 2015. This new project will contain 82 one-bedroom and 14 two bedroom apartments in two buildings. Fifteen units will be reserved for frail elderly.
Construction is expected to be completed in fall of 2018. Applications will be accepted beginning in spring 2018.
