Glen Lake Apartments

Glen Lake

Glen Lake Apartments is a mixed-income, mixed-use apartment complex located one block from downtown and walkable to the picturesque waterfront in the Village of Watkins Glen.

Completed in early 2021, Glen Lake Apartments included the new construction of a total of 34 apartments, plus non-residential space for a 7,341 square foot childcare center providing educational opportunities for children birth to age five, My Place: A Play and Learning Center. The three-story building is equipped with an elevator, a community room, laundry room, and a mix of one and two bedroom apartments with bulk storage space available for each unit.

The apartments are affordable to renters earning between 47% and 80% of the Area Median Income, and six units have been set aside for clients of the Schuyler County ARC. The childcare center includes five classrooms, meeting/program space for families, a commercial kitchen for meals, offices for staff, and a dedicated playground.

Glen Lake Apartments is constructed to extremely high-energy efficiency and green building standards. In March 2021, the building achieved LEED Gold certification, a designation that reduces energy and water usage, promotes better indoor air quality, and reduces maintenance and operation costs, among many other benefits.

The project is located at 2nd, 3rd and Porter Streets, one block from downtown and close to restaurants, parks, the waterfront, grocery stores, and Watkins Glen Central School campus.

The project continues to be in partnership with Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services.
