The Milton Meadows Apartments to be built at the intersection of Route 34/34B in Lansing will receive $5.1 million in financing from the state, according to the Office of Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The development will be composed of nine two-story buildings on vacant land in the Town Center, the 156-acre area across from the Town Hall, Lansing Community Library and the Lansing Community Center, a press release from the governor's office stated. Construction in the area will include the nine buildings that will house eight units each, as well as the construction of a community building.
The apartment complex will contain 72 housing units for low to moderate-income individuals and families.
Milton Meadows Apartments was approved at a Town of Lansing Planning Board meeting in November 2017, however, the $5.1 million in state funding was not awarded until Thursday.
The project is being developed by Cornerstone Group, a Rochester-based affordable housing developer. Cornerstone Group purchased 13 acres within the Town Center in order to develop the apartment complex.
