The historic Main Street School in Waterloo has been transformed into a senior housing complex after serving the educational needs of the community for 84 years.

The building, which first opened its doors in 1928, now hosts 35 newly converted apartments, with over 80% already occupied.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for June 18th, celebrating the school’s new chapter as the LaFayette Apartments.

Lakewood Development LLC of East Syracuse, the project’s developer, has reconfigured the three-story structure to include 33 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom units designed specifically for seniors aged 62 and above.

This affordable housing initiative targets residents with incomes at or below 50% and 60% of the median income, with certain apartments designated for the elderly.
