Salina Crossing

Syracuse, NY

Salina Crossing is a mixed-use development that will strengthen neighborhood revitalization efforts in two distinct neighborhoods connected by Salina Street, a main thoroughfare that spans the Northside and Southside of Syracuse. This comprehensive project will build upon two successful prior LIHTC projects Housing Visions has completed (Salina Square on the Southside and Prospect Hill Homes on the Northside) providing critical mass to achieve wholesale change and sustainable neighborhood revitalization.

By rehabilitating and rebuilding scattered sites in both of these neighborhoods, Salina Crossing will address unmet residential and commercial demand, tackle blighted and vacant properties, and improve the quality of life for residents and neighbors. The resulting Salina Crossing project will provide 49 housing units, as well as 5,895 square feet of leasable commercial space in 2 new, mixed-use buildings along a traditional commercial corridor.

The unit configuration within the 10 buildings will be (27) 1 Bedroom Units; (11) 2 Bedroom Units; (6) 3 Bedroom Units; and (5) 4 Bedroom Units. Salina Crossing will serve persons with physical disability/ Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
