“It’s designed to really fortify and enhance our existing projects while continuing previous revitalization efforts,” said Justin Rudgick, Housing Visions senior development project manager.

Housing Visions will likely complete two two-family residences by November, and complete the $8.9 million project in 2013.

The project price tag and density of apartment-based subsidized housing in and around Cornhill led to some criticism from Common Council members, but the project was approved by the body early in 2011.

Since 1998, the Syracuse-based nonprofit has developed nine projects, with a total of 78 buildings and 232 units of housing. Its most recent development, the $9.2 million Kemble Square development near Oneida Square, opened in August 2011.
