Last month, various community leaders and politicians joined Omni Housing Development, LLC, The Wesley Community, and Saratoga Springs Mayor Scott Johnson to celebrate the ground breaking on the $18 million rehabilitation of Embury Apartments. Embury, a 200-unit affordable housing development for low-income seniors aged 62 and older, was originally constructed over 35 years ago and is located on the Wesley Health Care Community campus in Saratoga Springs. The financing for the rehabilitation has been provided by NY DHCR’s Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program, Embury Apartments, Inc., Community Preservation Corporation, M&T Bank and grants from the New York Energy research and Development Authority.
Governor Paterson said, "Embury Apartments is a wonderful example of the government and private sector coming together to make a difference in people’s lives. We must create more opportunities for senior citizens to live independently in decent, safe, and affordable homes. Embury Apartments will offer easy access to services and the comfort and security that is particularly important in times of economic uncertainty."
