East Side Courts

Given the continued influx of refugees to Buffalo, the resettlement agencies need to expand in capacity. As such, this group proposed a transitional housing development with embedded amenities, in which the refugees and homeless individuals could be accommodated for up to 90 days. The site is strategically located combining carefully identified affordable lots at an optimum walking distance to many urban assets and existing bus routes. Structurally, the project employs prefabricated building modules, a growing strategic know-how in the region.
