RIT architecture students help to design low-income housing
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Architectural students at RIT are working to help design sustainable housing in low-income areas of Rochester.
The students are partnering with CONEA - the Coalition of Northeast Associations - to focus on the building and sale of affordable housing.
Most of the homes in the northeast quadrant of Rochester are low-income rentals.
Renderings of the housing were on display during a reception at City Hall Wednesday afternoon.
The $30 million expansion project has already broken ground; the Jordan Health Center on Holland Street is putting a stake in the revitalization project as well.
