The Niagara Falls Housing Authority board of commissioners has selected Beacon Communities LLC as the co-developer on the Harry S. Jordan Gardens Housing Redevelopment in the Highland/Beech area of the City of Niagara Falls.
A press release stated, “NFHA is the largest landlord in the City of Niagara Falls and predominantly serves low- to moderate-income individuals and families. The Jordan Gardens is a 100-unit structure with a mix of one to five-bedroom units. The housing structure was built in the 1960s and has been in need of rehabilitation for decades. As a result, NFHA has embarked on an aggressive, community-led initiative to improve this long-time neglected area.”
"We believe a New York state investment in this community has the potential to kickstart economic development in one of the most underserved areas in the City of Niagara Falls,'' said Clifford Scott, executive director of the Niagara Falls Housing Authority. “The selection of Beacon Communities will significantly impact the area's rehabilitation process as they are known for implementing efficient plans that entail care, consideration and compassion."
“We are excited to work with the Niagara Falls Housing Authority on this important project, which will upgrade and preserve affordable, safe, reliable housing at a time when the need for it is higher than ever,” said Nicole Ferreira, executive vice president of development at Beacon Communities, who oversees the company’s efforts across New York. “We look forward to a collaborative process that engages residents and positively impacts their lives while uplifting the greater Niagara Falls community.”
