SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- A ribbon cutting ceremony was held at Syracuse's newest apartment building for mixed rate housing on Monday.
Mayor Stephanie Miner led the ceremony to officially open Kasson Place Apartment building on James Street. It's one of the four new apartments restored by Rochester-based Conifer Realty.
Renovations to the buildings cost more than $24 million. Officials said the project provides affordable housing, and quality housing for 173 families in Syracuse.
"One of the main goals of the city is to provide not only affordable housing, but quality housing. There's a lot of affordable housing in the city, it's just people are living in sometimes very squalid conditions. This adds to the quality affordable housing stock that we're trying to achieve," said Mayor Miner.
The Hillside and West Park Apartments will serve families earning at or below 60 percent of the average median income in the county.
