Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - A pair of new apartment buildings aimed at helping two groups of people in need opened on Thursday.

A special ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the Upper Falls Square Apartments on Hudson Avenue.

There are 150 apartments in two buildings will benefit low-middle income residents, as well as those with special needs.

One building was dedicated to the late Ellen Stubbs, a nurse at the Jordan Health Center. The second building was named for Minister Raymond Scott and Maxine Scott, who are longtime community activists in Rochester.

"It's a safe place to live, it's a beautiful place to live, and you can't ask for anything better," Maxine Scott said.

Approximately 1/3 of the apartments will be occupied by early November. All of them are expected to be filled by Christmas.
