Winton Gardens

Rochester, New York

2052 E. Main Street

Originally built in 1973, and last renovated in 2003 with 4 percent bonds and tax credits, we acquired the 206-unit Cedarwood Towers Apartments in 2018 with our co-developer Rochester's Cornerstone Group. Desperately in need of repairs, the community was an affordable housing senior community with two 11-story towers. In one year, the development team completely transformed the community with improved units and enhanced common areas with market-rate amenities and technology. The investment has enabled us to extend affordability for an additional 30 years, providing residents with peace of mind that they wouldn't be priced out of their homes.


Our work included a seismic retrofit for building stability, community gardens, an outdoor fitness center, enhanced entrance, improved Social Service office, a new mailbox, and movie rooms, an enhanced salon area, and revamped game room. We also upgraded security to include cameras, lighting, gating, and a secured entry. For the community, we also created a new dining area and kitchen, new computer room, wellness space, new outdoor congregating space, faster elevators, and a modernized exterior facade. Additionally, each unit received new appliances, countertops, and cabinets. We also replaced plumbing fixtures, tiled the bathrooms, put in new flooring and windows, made mechanical upgrades to heating and cooling systems, and LED Lighting.


We partnered with several public, financial, and development partners to create a modern and safe community for the residents. Our partners included the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the City of Rochester, Related Affordable, and Related Management.
