Rome, N.Y. -- Wednesday, a cause for celebration in Rome, as phase one of Air City Lofts, a $20-million apartment community at Griffiss Business and Technology Park, is completed. Kate Jarosh, Asset Manager at Bonacio Development, says this project addressed the glaring need of more living options in the area.

"What we didn't know was that there were 6000 employees driving away from their daily work to go home and were really looking for somewhere to live work and play."

The rooms range from $1300-$2500, and come with multiple amenities. The complex includes a gym, ground floor commercial space, and close proximity to work in or outside the city of Utica. Rome Mayor, Jacqueline Izzo, says the convenience of this complex is something that residents aren't used to seeing.

"It's really centrally located. It's probably the most modern facility we have in the area... To have a new modern facility; we didn’t have that market rate that was available and new construction is always a tougher sell, but we’ve had nothing but great comments.

All 84 units in phase one filled up to 100 percent residential occupancy, which is making the company add a phase two. This features 72 additional units currently under construction that will open this fall. Oneida County Executive, Anthony Picente, says this is the type of boom that the area has been waiting for.

"A whole new generation of workforce, a whole new generation moving into onedia county. This is what we've been dreaming of... We needed apartments, we needed housing. We (still) need more housing."
