Construction to Opening: An Update:
See What's Happening -
It's Now Open and Operational

NEW: You are Invited to Get a Glimpse of this Amazing Book: "Constructing Supportive Housing – A Construction Photo Journal" – Describing the whole process of demolition and construction of Eastman Commons Community.

This book, principally in pictures, reflects the story of a dream coming to a reality – creating housing for the poor and formerly homeless who needed it most. It has been twelve years in coming through the diligent efforts of the Eastman Commons Board of Directors, its many volunteers and supporters that the Supportive Housing reflected in this book reached its true beginning with the start of construction – but most of all, reflections of the new housing community where residents live with a new sense of pride of place, renewed hope and a distinctive place they call home.

2013: Residents have moved in and are enjoying their new "home" - the apartments are spacious and the residents are loving them along with the many other building amenities, including the services that are coordinated on-site by a local provider as the residents needs arise. A "ribbon-cutting ceremony was held and turned out to be a grand event on a sunning day that welcomed Federal, State and local government representatives, professionals from supporting and private organizations, neighbors and volunteers that were instrumental with the financing and completion of this remarkable housing complex and community asset improving the lives of its residents, the neighborhood and City of Rochester in general.

June 2012 to Completion:   June 2012 was a busy month with construction winding-down and the final touches of completion underway.  At the same time, it was an exciting month that saw new residents moving in to their attractive and wonderful new apartments. Many special design features have been incorporated into the construction of this remarkable building, including: a tight, highly insulated building envelope, energy star appliances, high performance condensing boilers, energy efficient lighting controls and fixtures, water saving plumbing fittings and fixtures, and many other materials chosen for their reduced environmental impact. The building is dedicated to creating a vibrant community that residents call home.
