The developers are working with Syracuse Urban Partnership to recruit entrepreneurial tenants representative of the diversity of the community. The apts are studios, 1- and 2-bedroom units priced for work-force housing, including 4 units reserved for low-income tenants. Tenant created jobs are to total: 20 professional, 18 food service and 8 retail positions. 30 construction jobs are created over the one-year build.
