845 Commons


845 Commons was previously a long-abandoned factory. It is now known as the largest single-site supportive housing residence west of the Hudson. It houses 155 studio apartments available for men including veterans, disabled individuals, and those coping with a mental illness. Sonny Bonacio, President of Bonacio Construction, Inc. said, “This was one of the most difficult projects in terms of complexity that we have dealt with but also the most gratifying. We replaced a vacant factory with safe, affordable housing for residents including many vets who deserve a great building to call home. The Historic Preservation Award by The Preservation League of New York State for 845 Commons is something we are very proud of.”
