Home Leasing LLC, a Rochester company, is leading the renovation of the former Holley High School.

The Holley High School will be turned into a mixed-use facility that will include 41 apartments for seniors age 55 and up. The existing school auditorium will be renovated to be used by the Village of Holley as meeting space and administrative offices.

The site will be known as Holley Gardens. The former school is in the heart of the Village of Holley and residents will have easy access to local small businesses and amenities.

Home Leasing LLC has been working on the $17 million renovation for several years, lining up financing, including some state assistance. Home Leasing is working along with Edgemere Development, Glasow Simmons Architecture L.L.P. and Marathon Engineering – all Rochester-based firms – on the project.
