Massive Renovation Project At Binghamton High-Rise
A multi-million-dollar improvement project is underway at one of downtown Binghamton's tallest buildings.
All 144 units at 100 Chenango Place are being renovated. Improvements in the 15-story structure include the installation of new elevators, security cameras and alarm systems.
The building is owned by ABC Housing Development Fund of Oneida County. It opened more than four decades ago.
Interior and exterior work has been underway for a few months. Building manager Amy Ennis said about 15 units in the upper portion of the tower have been renovated so far.
Ennis said elevator replacement work is expected to start next week. It will take about 10 weeks to replace each of the building's two elevators.
Ennis said the building management is planning new programs and activities for residents, many of whom are over the age of 62.
