Eastman Commons has been transformed from a deteriorating, vacant and contaminated manufacturing building into a new affordable residential housing complex. The project provides 80 one-bedroom rental units where residents hold standard lease agreements. All resident incomes are below 60% of the area median income.
The project houses a unique mix of tenants in the Rochester area. Low income, single adults comprise 49% of the units and 51% are referred from local homeless shelters. An array of supportive services are offered by a local social service provider to meet the needs of residents.
Property management services are provided by a local management company and an on-site Building Director employed by Breaking Ground assures that services and management are in accordance with Breaking Ground’s mission.
