ROME, N.Y. -- New construction in Rome is bringing a mixed-use building to the area.
About 4 acres of land in the Griffiss Business and Technology Park will transform into two mixed-use buildings for commercial space and 84 market-rate apartments.
Bonacio Construction, based in Saratoga Springs, bought the land.
Empire State Development is providing $1.25 million to the $20 million project.
Senate Deputy Minority Leader Joe Griffo said in a statement:
“The Griffiss Business and Technology Park is a major hub of innovation and an important economic driver and job creator for Rome and the Mohawk Valley. I am hopeful that this $20 million project consisting of a mix of apartments and commercial space will provide area companies with another tool to recruit and keep employees here and will help to attract additional companies to the region.”
Construction begins this fall.
