Construction begins at El Camino Estates

Ground was broken last week for El Camino Estates, an affordable 25-unit single family rental housing project in Rochester’s Northeast.

The project comprises nine three-bedroom units and 16 four-bedroom units and is concentrated in the neighborhood of Conkey Avenue and Harris, Woodford and Nielson streets.

Seven of the lots back up to the new El Camino Butterhole-Seneca Park Trail, the pedestrian trail being developed under the leadership of the Genesee Land Trust and slated to be completed in the near future.

All of the lots are close to a former City of Rochester Home Expo site and other IADC developments.

The streets are all within half a mile of School #8.

Units will be leased to families with incomes less than 50 percent of the area median income.

Atlas Builders is the general contractor and the project was designed by SWBR Architects and Stantec. Landsman Real Estate Services will manage the property.

The project is being financed by partners including the state’s Division of Housing and Community Renewal Housing, the City of Rochester, Richman Capital Group and JPMorgan Chase Bank.

El Camino Estates is being developed through a partnership between Rochester’s Cornerstone Group Ltd. and the Ibero-American Development Corp.
