The approval comes after the council’s approval of the sale of approximately half an acre of the two-acre Dietz Street parking lot to Parkview Development, LLC for $257,500.

Lofts on Dietz will be a mixed-use building, which will house the Hartwick College Grain Innovation Center, as well as 24 apartments and a first-floor art gallery. The Innovation Center will be a key component of Hartwick’s developing Institute for Sustainable Foods.

“Together, we have taken a significant step forward in bringing commerce, vibrancy, and creativity to downtown Oneonta. The proposed Hartwick College Grain Innovation Center brings an academic presence to our downtown that has long been sought. Lofts on Dietz will help address our need for better housing options and will provide a spark to our efforts in positioning Oneonta to be a thriving community of the future,” said Oneonta Mayor Gary Herzig.

Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2020.
