About this Project
Named for the Oneida Indians, Oneida NY is a small town community centrally located between Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo, Boston, and NYC. Home to the world’s smallest church and Oneida tableware (founded in 1880), this community was built on a pedestrian scale. Everything is easily accessible within walking or biking distance. That’s one of the reasons that almost 12,000 people call Oneida NY home. It’s also becoming a desired location to settle for people who work remotely from home.
Oneida Towers II is just one of 3 affordable housing communities designated for the elderly and disabled.
Located at 226 Farrier Ave, Oneida Towers offers Section 8 housing in its 140 units. The rents are subsidized through the HUD program. Residents pay based on their income levels. The median income in Oneida is just over $35,00 per year.
When the tower was built, Crystal Structures provided an upscale glass canopy entryway that offers shelter from the weather and makes coming home a welcoming experience.
The entry consists of a large, 30′ wide canopy over lean-to-style glazed structures with vertical glazing where the structures join with the overhead glass canopy. This is a unique structure that was specially designed for the Oneida Towers. Under the canopy, along the sides, are tables with shade umbrellas so residents can have a place to take in the sunshine and enjoy the outdoors without being subject to rain or winds.
