Conifer Realty is pleased to announce that we have been awarded the 2014 New York State Housing and Community Renewal Design Award in the category of Community Revitalization on behalf of Erie Harbor. HCR presented the awards on March 16th to the winning architects and developers.
“I am pleased that the design professionals at HCR have selected Erie Harbor for the Community Revitalization Design Award. The successful design at Erie Harbor has had a transformative effect on the riverfront location as well as the surrounding community,” said Allen Handelman, Vice President of Conifer Realty and the project’s Project Director.
HCR consists of all New York State’s major housing and community renewal agencies. Organizing these agencies under a single management structure has created new efficiencies and granted better coordination of the state’s resources to allow for a better quality product. Under the agency, there are four groups of programs, Finance and Development, Housing Preservation, Community Renewal and Professional Services. Erie Harbor’s recognition for Community Renewal is based on community and economic development, job creating and downtown revitalization.
