An affordable apartment building is proposed for the heart of the Fruit Belt. Southern Tier Environments for Living (STEL) and the Fruit Belt Land Trust are proposing to construct the three-story building at 326 High Street located at the northeast corner of High and Peach streets.
The 33-unit building would be built on eight City-owned properties. One multi-family, wooden frame building at the corner of High and Peach Street would be demolished as part of the project. The building will include 12 two-bedroom and 21 one-bedroom apartments along with a community room on the ground floor.
Two variances are required to build the project including for excessive lot width of 138 feet were a maximum of 120 feet is permitted and a proposed rear setback of 7’ 3” where 15 percent of lot depth is required.
The development team is also working on plans to construct five three-bedroom duplexes, one two-bedroom duplex and five single-family homes on twenty-one scattered residential parcels also owned by the City.
SWBR is project architect.
