Estee Senior Apartments is the redevelopment of the long vacant Estee School building located at 90 North Main Street in the City of Gloversville, Fulton County, 12078. Estee Senior Apartments is 37 units of senior affordable housing funded by the NYS HCR 2015 Unified Funding round. The funding combined Federal 9% LIHC with a NYSERDA grant, CBDG funds from the City of Gloversville, USC funds, and a grant from EDAP administered by DASNY.
The former Estee School reached a point that demolition was the only viable option due to the spalling bricks, rotting structural elements and mold within the building. The new building will be designed to resemble the former school when completed and will contain 37 one-bedroom units of quality senior affordable housing. Eight units will have Project Based Section 8. The building will include a community room, laundry room, exercise room, computer lab and rental office.
Closing took place in May 2017 with construction beginning immediately thereafter. The project is scheduled for August 2018 occupancy.
