Construction on mixed multi-family community Parker Place underway in Perinton

PERINTON, N.Y. (WHEC) — Construction on Parker Place on Route 250 in the Town of Perinton is underway.

The Town of Perinton tweeted an update Wednesday.

The town says the project will create a mixed multi-family community with 120 total units in 11 buildings.

Those buildings will include multi-family buildings, townhomes and a clubhouse and pool in what is currently 9 acres of open space.

The project comes as Perinton is facing a housing shortage. The town has high occupancy rates and a limited supply of homes. Those two factors are keeping costs high, and the town’s Draft Comprehensive Plan 2020 Update said that’s acting as a barrier to entry for young couples and those on a fixed income.

The plan cited more multi-family units as a solution to the problem.
