Rochester, New York: The Eastman Reserve Provides Housing at Eastman Business Park

HUD User publishes a series of case studies based on federal, state, and local strategies that increase affordable housing opportunities and support sustainable community development. The projects and community development efforts featured in these reports have demonstrated innovation through a multitude of partnerships and initiatives.

Since the Eastman Kodak Company declared bankruptcy in 2012, plans have been in motion to revitalize the iconic company’s 1,200-acre campus in Rochester, New York. Known as Eastman Business Park (EBP), the site has been rezoned to allow a mix of industrial, commercial, and residential uses to return the property to productive use. To further EBP’s goal of becoming a live-work-play destination, the human services and community development nonprofit PathStone Corporation developed the park’s first housing as part of a mixed-use development, the Eastman Reserve, in March 2020. The Eastman Reserve includes 187 housing units along with commercial and community spaces. In addition to benefiting its residents, the Eastman Reserve has generated positive economic development and housing outcomes for the surrounding neighborhood and the city.
