ONEONTA – Springbrook CEO Patricia Kennedy, got the good news a few nights before Christmas.

Her proposed Ford Block Revival – 22 apartments for executives and professionals above 186-212 Main St. – has been awarded a $1 million CFA grant through the Mohawk Valley Regional Economic Development Council.  The three-story building is on the National Register of Historic Places.

“It’s not just our Christmas present,” she said. “It’s our gift to the community.”

The Oneonta plan came about last year, as Springbrook completed Century Sunrise, a 120-apartment complex in the former Endicott-Johnson Shoe Factory that provided housing for people with developmental disabilities.

“We realized that this was our first step in working in housing development,” said Kennedy. “We believe we’re a good partner.”
