Work Set to Begin on Apartment Complex in Endicott

An apartment complex is springing up in Endicott, meant to help those displaced by the floods of 2006 and 2011.

25 duplexes are being built at Glendale Drive in Endicott in what's called the Cardinal Cove Apartments Project. $7.2 million in state flood relief funds as well as another expected three to four million dollars in state money is going toward the 13- million dollar project. According to the developer the rest will be covered through tax credit programs. First priority will be given to those displaced by recent floods.

"If that doesn't come to fruition usually the type of individual that we know that looks for this type of housing is maybe a first-year teacher, a first-year nurse's aid, those type of individuals," said Tony FIala, Executive Director of S.E.P.P. Management Company.

Fiala said Sepp Management is negotiating a pilot - or payment in lieu of taxes - agreement with the Town of Union that will last 15 years. Rents are expected to be between $530 and $700 per month. Construction is expected to last about 16 months, depending on weather.
