New $20 Million Housing Development Coming to Buffalo’s Westside
Over the last few years, Buffalo has had a lot of development and new construction, both commercial and residential. A local non-profit has announced a new series of environmentally friendly developments that are scheduled to start in early 2022.
PUSH Buffalo recently announced that their 49-unit housing project that is going to be environmentally advanced and will have a net-zero carbon footprint is ready to move forward.
The housing units will use geothermal and heat pumps to reduce utility costs and reduce the need to rely on fossil fuels. The development is estimated to cost $20-22 million and phase one of the project is expected to begin in early 2022, with phase two to begin in early 2023.
The development will have a total of 49-units built between 12 new buildings and 2 existing structures. At least 30% of the units will be specifically set aside for people with addiction and/or with a history of mental health issues or homelessness. PUSH Buffalo is going to partner with BestSelf Behavioral Health that will provide case management and supportive services.
Officials from PUSH Buffalo also plan to use the construction of these buildings to help train young adults in the tech and building trades.
