$11 Million Apartment Complex Planned in Endicott
Dozens of apartments are to be developed in buildings now owned by an Endicott church.
The SEPP Group of Binghamton is finalizing plans for an $11 million project at the old St. Ambrose School and its adjacent gymnasium.
The site is at the corner of Broad Street and Garfield Avenue, just east of the church which faces on Washington Avenue.
John Bernardo, executive director of the SEPP Group, said the agency has the property under contract for the proposed apartment complex.
Bernardo said 40 one-bedroom units are planned for the project. The apartments would be targeted to people who will be working at the nearby Huron Campus.
The planned complex would be larger than a project SEPP had proposed in 2021 for a nearby site on Washington Avenue. Bernardo said that project was scrapped after it became clear it wasn't viable.
In addition to the planned apartments, the redevelopment envisioned for the St. Ambrose building would provide some commercial space.
Bernardo said Delta Engineers of Endwell now is working on the proposed layout for the new project.
The SEPP Group will be working with the state Housing Finance Agency to develop a financing package for the complex.
Bernardo said he hopes construction could start by the middle of next year.
Hundreds of children attended St. Ambrose School when it opened in 1934. The gymnasium facility was completed in 1963.
St. Ambrose Church representatives could not be reached Tuesday to discuss the planned sale of the Garfield Avenue buildings.
