Hammondsport apartments are almost full

HAMMONDSPORT—Having been open for tenants since July 1, the Lake Street Senior Apartments has filled 17 of the 21 apartments available.
Arbor Development, formerly Steuben Churchpeople Against Poverty, is in charge of the project. Dan Gallagher, executive director of Arbor Development, said that since the opening, about four tenants have been moving in each month, with most coming in August. He said the remaining units include the only two-bedroom apartment and handicapped apartments.
Gallagher said all but one of the tenants had some sort of tie to the area, living here previously or having family here. He added many of the seniors now living in the apartments applied because they had a friend living there.
“A couple of seniors moved back to Hammondsport,” he said about former residents who are now tenants.
Gallagher added programs are already being held at the apartments for seniors. He explained the Office for the Aging has conducted programs for seniors and that the postmaster will be holding one about mail fraud. Because of that, he said the residents are starting to feel like a part of the community.
Construction started in May of last year. He explained the almost $5 million project was covered mostly by state funds. The building was formerly the Hammondsport/Urbana municipal offices. Gallagher said because of the nature of the project, not all the apartments are the same size. However, the apartments do offer the same amenities: kitchenettes, dining/living room spaces, and individual heating and cooling. The apartments are only open to people over 62 years old, and with low incomes.
