Moyer Carriage and Car Factory transformed into housing


New York Construction Report staff writer

The historic Moyer Carriage and Car Factory in Syracuse has been transformed into a 128-unit, mixed-use, affordable and supportive housing units, co-developed by Housing Visions and Redev CNY LLC.

“The significant economic investments taking place in Central New York require us to find innovative solutions that will increase the supply of housing across the entire region,” Governor Kathy Hochul said. “The adaptive reuse of the Moyer Carriage and Car Factory transforms an important relic of this region’s past into new, modern housing in the heart of Syracuse’s North Side that will accommodate a growing workforce for years to come.”

In the last five years, New York State Homes and Community Renewal has created or preserved over 2,500 affordable homes in Onondaga County, part of a $25 billion plan to create or preserve 100,000 affordable homes across New York.

The development included the extensive rehabilitation of the interior and exterior of the historic structure. The rehabilitated buildings were also designed to meet criteria for Enterprise Green Communities certification. Environmentally sustainable features include low-flow fixtures, all LED lighting, and Energy Star appliances.

“Our goal in redeveloping the Moyer Carriage Lofts was to create affordable, high-quality housing, while instilling new life to this building and the Northside Syracuse community. As we work towards a future that allows all to live in safe, affordable homes, the role of our partners, consultants, and HCR in particular cannot be understated,” said Ryan Benz, Partner and Co-Founder, Redev CNY. “We’re so proud of this project and the role it will play within the community and the impact it will have on people’s families for generations to come.”

Participation in the State’s brownfield cleanup program included site cleanup at the same time as site redevelopment. Cleanup activities included removal of contaminated soil and treatment of contaminated groundwater, which required construction of a stabilization system to preserve the exterior of the historic building.
