Construction is complete for DePaul's newest project in West Seneca, New York on Ebenezer Square, a three-story building containing 100 one- and two-bedroom apartments all with kitchens and bathrooms for income-eligible tenants. DePaul will offer New York State Office of Mental Health – Single Room Occupancy support services within Ebenezer Square. Removal of the foundation of the former structure on the site has been ongoing with some of the concrete being reused in the new building. Work continues on underground drainage, foundations and the floor.
Additionally, Ebenezer Square apartments has earned LEED for Homes Platinum Certification. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), is the foremost program for buildings, homes and communities that are designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance. "The DePaul Ebenezer Square Apartments' LEED certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership," said Rick Fedrizzi, CEO and founding chair, USGBC. "The urgency of USGBC's mission has challenged the industry to move faster and reach further than ever before, and the Ebenezer Square Apartments serve as a prime example of just how much we can accomplish."
