Watkins Glen School Apartments
ALBANY - [WENY] Governor Cuomo announced $95M in state funded awards to affordable housing developments across the state, with $3.8M coming right here to the Southern Tier.
The $3.8M will be going towards the re-use project of the Watkins Glen Middle School, by turning the classrooms into a 51 unit apartment complex for seniors.
The project already received $900K as part of 2013 Regional Council Consolidation Funding.
The Middle Schools auditorium and gymnasium will be also transformed into civic space available for the village to use. The district is making various renovations and additions to the High School building for when middle school students switch buildings for the 2014-2015 school year.
