Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery Announces Opening of $2.9 Million Mixed-Use Affordable Housing Development in Owego


The Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery today announced the opening of the $2.9 million Gateway Owego, a mixed-use affordable housing development with eight apartments, four storefront retail spaces and two retail/ office spaces. Brought to fruition through the state’s Small Project Affordable Rental Construction Program, the complex is located in the Village of Owego’s main commercial area and will aid the continued recovery from Hurricane Irene, which stalled over the region in August 2011. During the storm, the rapidly rising waters of the Susquehanna River, Owego Creek and Huntington Creek caused extensive flash flooding that damaged 85 percent of the community’s homes, businesses and municipal structures.
