ONEONTA – Attention, Oneonta: The Lofts on Dietz are coming.

Mayor Herzig is “excited” about the biggest DRI prospect so far.

Common Council will vote Tuesday on making Parkview Development & Construction, Inc., a father and son development team from the Hudson Valley, Ken and Sean Kearney, the “preferred developer” on a local version of Artspace – 40 lofts for artists and another 26 middle-income apartments  – planned for the Dietz Street parking lot.

All 66 units in the four-story building are “affordable,” Mayor Gary Herzig emphasized a few minutes ago, adding, “I’m very excited about this.”  If all goes as planned, a ground-breaking could occur next summer.

“This really kick-starts transforming downtown Oneonta,” he said.
