The latest phase of the Lakeview Hope VI initiative is under construction on Buffalo's Lower West Side.
The Lakeview Hope VI Phase III site, at 10th Street between Hudson and Maryland streets, includes the construction of various-sized units resembling townhouses. They will replace the barracks-style public housing units that made up the former Lakeview Homes projects.
The cost of this phase is about $10 million, said Housing Authority Executive Director Sharon W. West.
The authority was awarded the Hope VI grant in 1997 from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the $108.9 million revitalization plan.
