Kemble Square is the new construction of one building and the rehabilitation of five buildings with two receiving new additions for a total of 37 units of quality, affordable housing. Six units are reserved for veterans at risk of homelessness, and four units are fully accessible and adapted for individuals who have hearing or vision impairment. The Syracuse VA Medical Center provides case management services, clinical services, bene ts counseling, job training and other appropriate services geared toward the goal of independent living. Additional occupancy is targeted at families.
Housing Visions’ comprehensive approach to re-using old buildings with appropriate in- ll housing is almost unique in the affordable housing industry. Eco-friendly laminate flooring and ceramic tiles were used rather than carpeting and vinyl, and permeable concrete was used in the parking areas, driveways and sidewalks as part of a comprehensive surface water management plan.
