Two housing developments, one market-rate and one subsidized, are under construction along Jefferson Avenue. Norstar Development is constructing the third phase of new units near the A.D. Price housing project for the Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority. Fifty one to four-bedroom units are being constructed along Jefferson between Matthews Street and William Street, at the corner of William Street and Spring Street, and along Madison Street.
The $12.9 million project is using funding from NYS Homes and Community Renewal, the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, Low-Income Housing Tax Credit program, New York State Homes and Community Renewal, and HUD Replacement Housing Factor (RHF) grants.
Nearby, Burke Homes is developer for ten new houses in Sycamore Village, a 25-lot subdivision at the corner of Sycamore Street and Jefferson Avenue. A house at 26 Matthews Street is sold and under construction (below). It is the first single-level home in the community.
Burke is planning new houses that have exteriors consistent with the existing homes in Sycamore Village. Two-story plans with three bedrooms and 1 ½ baths start at $238,900. Three bedroom ranch designs start at $250,900.
Fifteen new homes were constructed in Sycamore Village in 2008 consisting of eleven market rate and four subsidized homes. Market-rate homes were priced from $185,000 to $220,000 while the four subsidized homes were priced in the $150,000 to $165,000 range. Most residences have rear-loading garages, many accessed from Sydni Alley, a new alleyway constructed through the 3.86 acre site. There is a landscaped common area located between Sydni Alley and Matthews Street. The houses facing Matthews Street have front-facing garages.
