The final meeting of the redevelopment of the former Immaculate Conception School site was on Monday, May 13 at 4 p.m. in the Common Council Chambers.
INHS and STREAM Collaborative presented the project to the public with time for questions at the end.
Current Project Overview
At this time, the project is slated to have 74 units of affordable housing: 4 for-sale townhomes, 6 rental townhomes, 330 W. Buffalo to be renovated into a duplex, with the remaining units housed in the multi-family building. Catholic Charities’ building will be refurbished and the organization will continue to occupy the space.
74 unit type breakdown (subject to change):
- 7 efficiencies
- 36 one bedrooms
- 20 two bedrooms
- 10 three bedrooms
- 1 four bedroom
Average Median Income (AMI) unit breakdown:
- 11 units are set to be 30% AMI or below
- 26 units at 50% AMI or below
- 26 units at 70% AMI or below
- 11 units at 90% AMI or below
Five percent of the total number of units will be ADA accessible, while all units will be ADA visitable.
The multi-family building wing facing W. Buffalo Street will be a four story building that steps down into three stories in the front facing facade, while the wing on Plain Street will be two stories. On the backside of the building that faces Court Street, there will be a canvas dedicated to BJM that will have some kind of architectural treatment. Details are being worked out with school officials.
Commercial space will be available to nonprofit service organizations. No details on who will occupy those spaces have been announced.
There is no update on the number of parking spaces or the playground area, as INHS is undergoing a traffic study to determine street parking, and working to determine the number of spaces needed based on unit size, proximity to downtown and income.
The next opportunity to see updated renderings will be at site plan review. More details to come. Most updated renderings can be seen below.
