Nelson wants to purchase Salt Point building

    WATKINS GLEN—A new developer is interested in turning the Watkins Glen village water treatment building into apartments.
    Watkins Mayor Mark Swinnerton said a deal with Bruce Nelson will be finalized Wednesday, May 30, to develop what was previously called Magee Point Landing or Salt Point. The property on Salt Point Road houses the village’s raw water intake building. Swinnerton said that facility will remain on the premises, but will be separate from Nelson’s development.
    Swinnerton said Nelson is looking at building high end apartments with dock slips. He said, “it’s a pretty impressive plan. I’m excited about it.” He added he knew no other specifics about the plan yet, but added Nelson will expand the property on the south side.
    Swinnerton explained the village had previously sold the property to William and John Benedict. The two purchased Magee Point Landing on July 16, 2008 under the auspices of Magee Point Associates LLC. Their intention is to renovate the existing brick structures into apartment and dining facilities as part of the Seneca Harbor master plan.
    Meanwhile, the village was planning to construct a new raw water intake building next door. However, after bids for the work came in over big and the project changed, the village board ended up purchasing the property back.
    “There’s no reason to relocate in the first place,” said Swinnerton. The water intake plant will remain at its current location, but be on the lake level. He said the pump rooms will only be accessible by the village, with only one entrance. Swinnerton added the building will be constructed to retain the sounds, which will only be necessary when the pumps are active.
    Nelson has already completed two other projects in Schuyler County. The most recent was the Flats on Broadway apartment complex, which used to the Rural Urban Center and the Union School. Nelson also developed the Montour House into apartments and business offices.
