Prospect Hill

Syracuse, New York
Date Completed

Prospect Hill Homes is part of a comprehensive neighborhood revitalization effort for the diverse North Side of Syracuse.  Housing Visions partnered with Home HeadQuarters, St. Joseph’s Hospital Health Center, and the City of Syracuse to create this project to specifically address the need for quality, affordable housing for low and moderate-income families.

Along the 500 and 600 blocks of North Townsend Street, with additional housing on the 600 block of Catherine Street, Prospect Hill Homes included the acquisition of a total of 21 lots with 13 buildings being demolished. The result is 12 new homes and 3 houses being substantially rehabbed, creating a total of 50 units of quality affordable housing for families in Syracuse’s Northside. Prospect Hill Homes are high-quality, environmentally friendly, and affordable with architectural details folding them into the neighborhood’s fabric. Balancing all the components of such a large project on one of the Northside’s most blighted blocks proved to be a challenge, but the results are indisputable.

Today, Syracuse’s Prospect Hill neighborhood is seeing additional investment with an infusion of commercial development, rising homeownership rates, and the development of market-rate and luxury apartments blocks away.  Prospect Hill is truly transforming into an attractive, economically vibrant neighborhood.
