The Watkins Glen 2nd Street Redevelopment project includes the new construction of a total of 34 apartments, plus non-residential space for a 7,341 square foot childcare center providing educational opportunities for children birth to age five. The three-story building will be equipped with an elevator, a community room, laundry room, and a mix of one and two bedroom apartments with bulk storage space available for each unit.

The apartments will be affordable to renters earning between 47% and 80% of the Area Median Income, and six units will be set aside for clients of the Schuyler County ARC. The childcare center will include five classrooms, meeting/program space for families, a commercial kitchen for meals, offices for staff, and a dedicated playground. The building will be constructed to extremely high-energy efficiency and green building standards.
The project site is located at 2nd, 3rd and Porter Streets, one block from downtown and close to restaurants, parks, the waterfront, grocery stores, and Watkins Glen Central School campus.
The project is in partnership with the Watkins Glen Housing Authority.
