Nelson will re-dedicate Flats on Broadway

    MONTOUR FALLS—Developer Bruce Nelson will hold a rededication ceremony for the Flats on Broadway project, coinciding with the 90th anniversary of the structure’s original dedication ceremony in 1921.
    The building on Broadway Street once served as a school and later as the Rural-Urban Center. Nelson purchased the property and started turning it into apartments and commercial space in late 2010. Maggie Martin explained it now houses eight apartments and will be the site of a new daycare center through the Schuyler County Child Care Coordinating Council.
    “We’ve very proud to be able to re-use buildings,” said Martin. “That was Nelson Development is proud of; adaptive reuse of historic properties.”
    Martin said the work followed the historical preservation guidelines under the National Parks Service and Nelson Development Group has applied for historic designation. Nelson has also been responsible for the renovation and re-opening of the Montour House before this project.
    Martin added in keeping with remembering the building’s past, the common areas are decorated with Andy Warhol style photos of former students and classrooms.
    The re-dedication ceremony will take place, Thursday, Jan. 4, at 6 p.m. The community is welcome. There will be a reception afterwards.
