Rochester, NY -- The former Corpus Christi Catholic school building on East Main Street would become a housing project under an agreement coming before the Rochester City Council next month.
Conifer Development has put together a $9.5 million funding package that includes federal and state housing credits. Mayor Tom Richards is asking the council to approve a $300,000 loan.
Plans call for about 40 mostly one-bedroom apartments in the building. They're designed to be affordable for lower-income people.
The building is across from the Auditorium Theater.
The historic front would be preserved. The rear would be demolished and replaced.
