affordable housing master plan and renovation
Liberty Garden was originally constructed in 1952 as NY State public housing with eight brick buildings and 180 garden style apartments. After decades of use it had become functionally obsolete. Its redevelopment is a fast track, 3-phase occupied renovation / expansion project to preserve affordable housing and create a more sustainable community. The work includes 158 renovated town homes, 10 new town homes, 12 new accessible flats, and a new 6,000 square foot community building. The seven acre site re-design includes new landscape, parking, exterior storage, play grounds, and civil / storm water management systems.
