Construction begins on Charlotte St. affordable housing complex
Rochester, N.Y. (WHAM) - Charlotte Square on the Loop is the latest affordable housing project to come to downtown Rochester.
A groundbreaking ceremony Thursday unveiled the site for the new 50-unit apartment complex located on Charlotte Street near the filled-in site of the Inner Loop.
When it is completed, it will have studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom apartments.
Mayor Lovely Warren said the project is bringing the community back together.
"I think that is very important that when we're doing projects like this that we're looking and forward thinking about building a neighborhood that encompasses everyone," Warren said.
The location of the affordable housing is right next to Charlotte Square at East End - a luxury apartment complex that opened one year ago.
