Tioga Bank Office and Apartments to Open in September
A major renovation project at a building in Owego's historic district is expected to be completed in a few weeks.
Tioga State Bank plans to move some operations into the site at 18 Lake Street in the village.
The bank's investment services office is to be relocated from Fifth Avenue in Owego to the street level of the three-story downtown building.
Bank president and CEO Robert Fisher has said four, two-bedroom apartments will be created on the top two floors. Those floors have not been utilized for several years.
The first floor of the building has been used for banking services in the past. Tioga State Bank acquired the property from First Niagara Bank about two years ago.
Work on the renovation job started last November. All three floors of the structure were gutted for the project.
A lot north of the building will provide parking for bank employees and customers, as well as for residents of the apartments.
The renovation work is nearing completion and the bank office is scheduled to open in late September. An automatic teller machine at the site has been operational for several weeks.
