The 27 Genesis Oroiquis permanent supportive housing apartments are located in the historic Weirich and Oroiquis buildings. These side by side buildings were constructed in 1884 and 1893 during a time when brick was becoming recognized as the preferred building material for commercial buildings.  The buildings have been placed on the National Registry of Historic Places.  The Genesis renovation has restored the historic charms of the buildings and they have been formally named the Oroiquis Apartments.  All of these apartments are dedicated to providing affordable housing to low-income individuals with disabilities.
