$21.6M affordable housing development opens for seniors
NEW YORK, NY — Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the completion of the new 96-apartment Azalea Village Phase Two, a $21.6 million affordable housing development for seniors in the Town of Webster. All tenants in the CDS Housing Azalea Village development can take advantage of services at the adjacent Wolf Life Transitions Center, which provides recreation, training, employment and volunteer opportunities, and an indoor therapy pool. "Quality and affordable housing is critical to the health and well-being of every New Yorker, especially our seniors," Governor Cuomo said. "This new development will not only provide a vibrant and supportive community for older adults, it will also serve as a smart investment in the area that moves the local economy and the Finger Lakes forward." "Investing in affordable housing is an essential part of our plan to strengthen the social safety net across New York," said Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul. "Thanks to an unprecedented commitment of resources, more seniors in the Finger Lakes Region will have access to high-quality housing options."
