Middle School transformed into affordable housing for seniors

Constructed in 1930, the Watkins Glen Middle School building features a brick façade and historic details such as its large hallways, solid wood doors, and the craftsmanship of its masonry. But as the town began to consolidate its school buildings, the structure was no longer needed as a school.

In an effort to repurpose the architecturally pleasing building while also tackling the problem of affordable housing, it was suggested to use the retired school building as a reinvestment and repurpose it as 51 affordable housing units for seniors.
