Join us for a press event at 11am, at 527 Utica St in ‪‎Buffalo NY‬ for the completion of a new low-income, affordable housing project in our neighborhood and city. We're proud to announce the completion of the MACH (Massachusetts Avenue Community Homes) Project. This project which is the biggest, low-income affordable housing project that PUSH Buffalo has been a part of was a collaboration between PUSH Buffalo, Housing Visions, and BNSC (Buffalo Neighborhood Stabilization Corporation) Buffalo.

From Housing Visions:

"Join us as we celebrate the completion of Mass Ave Community Homes with a Ribbon Cutting.

The completion of Mass Ave Community Homes (MACH) is the result of the successful and comprehensive collaboration between Housing Visions, PUSH Buffalo and BNSC Buffalo. This project responds to the critical need for high quality affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families in the City of Buffalo. It reinforces the positive work that has been going on for several years, and works toward a comprehensive and sustainable neighborhood with opportunities for all who live there. This project includes significant new investment in high quality, affordable housing through rehabilitation of long-vacant buildings, development of new high-quality in-fill housing, new commercial development, and community space within the Green Development Zone.

The project constructed and substantially rehabilitated a total of 16 buildings providing 46 apartment units. Twenty of the 46 units will be large family units of three- and four-bedrooms. Throughout the construction phase, the majority of the work was completed by local residents and local businesses."
