Home Leasing and Trillium Health are collaborating to develop a four-story mixed-use and mixed-income building that will provide for a wide range of households, continuing the progress that Home Leasing has made with new communities on the Upper East End. The project will consist of 72 housing units, first floor commercial space and a community pharmacy to be operated by Trillium. Home Leasing and Trillium Health are dedicated to creating an inclusive community providing access to downtown living and amenities across a wide range of incomes in an LGBTQ-welcoming environment.
The project is located on Site 3 of the Inner Loop Redevelopment on the west side of Union Street between East Avenue and Broad Street, at the eastern gateway to downtown Rochester.
Light-filled units will include full kitchens with dishwashers, central air-conditioning, in-unit storage, and private balconies. The building will include one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with rents ranging from $716-$1,032. Apartments will be affordable to households with a broad range of incomes. Additionally, in September 2018, Trillium received a conditional award for 21 supportive housing units through the Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative. Trillium Health is experienced at providing care management, medical and behavioral health care, and a comprehensive package of social support services for both target populations: People Living with HIV (PLWH), and individuals who are 55+ years of age and require assistance with one or more Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs). To augment success, Trillium Health will partner with several agencies, including Lifespan, to provide a full complement of supportive services.
Union Square will be complete in the spring of 2021.
