Joseph L. Allen Apartments

The new three-story, 52,500 SF building faces Albany Street in Schenectady's Hamilton Hill Neighborhood. It features 51 new studio, one- and two-bedroom units, 25 of which are set aside as supportive housing for individuals requiring services to live independently in the community. The remaining units are committed to affordable housing. 

All apartments feature fully-equipped kitchens with a range/refrigerator and microwave, a wall-mounted TV including basic cable service, and in-unit storage. The project incorporates "green" standards, including high-efficiency furnaces and condensing units for heating and cooling. The apartments are named in honor of Schenectady's first African-American City Councilman, Joseph L. Allen, a beloved and revered community member.
