Albany -- The new look of low income housing might make you do a double take. Albany is at the forefront of public housing improvements. The city has moved away from crowed apartments and into developments that look more like upscale neighborhoods.

"We have noticed that residents take better care of these homes. They feel like it's not a project and that it's there home and they appreciate that fact. It's not so crowded in. And it's not what most people associate with a housing project," says Paul Lipsey chairman of the Albany Housing Authority

There are about 20 new mixed and low income projects being built around Albany. Many of them are being built with 1994 flood money. There are 500 families on the waiting list.
