On Tuesday in Watkins Glen an affordable and supportive housing development project worth $11.6 million dollars was finished.
The Second Street location has 34 affordable apartments that include 6 supportive homes for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. It also has a childcare center for children under 5 to have access to educational opportunities.
The property was built using money from the $10 million Downtown Revitalization Initiative provided by New York State.
The goal of Glen Lake Apartments is to enhance the quality of life in downtown by providing safe, quality and affordable housing as well as access to childcare, according to Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul.
The building of this complex is a part of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s $20 billion, five-year Housing and Homelessness Plan, aimed at combating homelessness.
