A senior housing project is taking shape on the near east side. Mt. Aaron Manor will bring 10 apartments to an infill site at 528 Genesee Street, just west of Jefferson Avenue. The two-story building is located adjacent to Mt. Aaron Missionary Baptist Church and adjacent to a string of fairly new single-family residences on the north side of Genesee.
The project is fully-funded by the City of Buffalo Urban Renewal Agency in the amount of $1,453,950. In addition to ten single bedroom units, each apartment will be equipped with a washer, dryer, dishwasher, stove, refrigerator and off-street parking. HHL Architects designed the project and Lamparelli Construction is general contractor.
Under the leadership of Pastor Dwayne Jones, the new development will be located adjacent to Mt. Aaron Missionary Baptist Church. Since becoming pastor in 2006, Pastor Jones has helped turn the once-struggling church into a thriving beacon of hope for the entire community with an average attendance of almost 300 at his Sunday services.
