|Housing Visions and the city of Rome partnered together to make Rome Canal Village a success. Housing Visions Consultants, Inc. (HVC) constructed and manages 33 affordable housing units along the 400 block of South James Street in the City of Rome.
Overall, Rome Canal Village encompasses 12 properties, which before construction included 7 buildings and 5 vacant lots. 4 of the buildings were demolished while 3 were substantially rehabilitated. In addition, 8 new buildings were constructed. The total project has 11 buildings with 33 units of quality affordable rental housing. One of the substantially rehabilitated buildings was converted into an on-site management office with a tenant community space which includes laundry facilities.
Approximately 50% of the units are three bedrooms or larger for families. 5 units are reserved for qualified homeless veterans. 4 units are fully accessible and adapted for person(s) who have mobility impairment, and 2 units are adapted for person(s) who have hearing or vision impairment.
The project adheres to the Green Building Initiative and Energy Efficiency requirements of the New York State Division of Housing and Community Renewal. Housing Visions Construction Company, Inc. was the General Contractor for the project.
