Firm to detail plans for housing complex


The proposed development site includes seven parcels. Janet C. Izzo owns 10-12 Blodgett Drive and three other parcels without addresses. Richard and Karen Woods own 150 Blodgett Drive and another parcel without an address, the plans said, and Emerson and Caroline Wassehnova own a parcel with no address listed.

According to the drawings, the apartment complex would be constructed on property where a one-story house stands on the Woods’ 150 Blodgett Drive parcel, and a stormwater facility is proposed on the 10-12 Blodgett Drive parcel where a one-story duplex stands.

A tentative goal would be opening for the 2014 academic year, but the project was in stages too early to know if that schedule was realistic, Smetana said in November.

That month, SUNY Oneonta announced that its plans for a townhouse development on Clinton Street were postponed in part because of the private development project. The college housing for about 200 students was to open in 2014.

“While we may revisit the project at some point; it’s not being pursued right now,” Legg said Monday.

Newman Development Group developed and built Twin River Commons, an off-campus student house housing complex that opened last year for Binghamton University students.

Previously, the company developed the 720-bed University Plaza project, also near Binghamton University.
