Gov. Hochul announces completion of affordable housing development on Buffalo’s East Side

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Gov. Kathy Hochul announced Wednesday the completion of the $19 million Olympic Avenue Apartments for low-income households.

The apartments are affordable for those earning 60% or less of the area median income.

Located in East Buffalo’s former Public School 78, the once-vacant building now contains 46 apartments. Forty-three apartments have one bedroom and three have two bedrooms. Eight units overall are specifically intended for disabled individuals who will have access to on-site support services.

The development will provide free internet along with energy-efficient lighting, heating and cooling. The apartments also feature new sidewalks, lighting, a playground and a community garden.

“This project exemplifies New York’s creativity in transforming underutilized properties into much-needed homes,” Hochul said in a release. “Our ongoing investments in East Buffalo are improving affordability, strengthening our communities and increasing housing opportunities for all.”
