Announcement Planned on Fate of JC “Victory” Building
There are signs that construction work on a former Endicott Johnson complex in Johnson City may finally get underway.
The massive structure at 59 Lester Avenue was sold for $250,000 by Broome County nearly two years ago.
County Executive Jason Garnar on Thursday said "over the past couple of weeks, there's been some really exciting developments that we learned about in regards to that project."
Speaking on WNBF Radio's Binghamton Now program, Garnar said he expects to provide more information on what is planned for the site "very soon."
Garnar met with developer Isaac Anzaroot a few weeks ago to discuss the lack of progress on what had been described as a $50 million project to put 228 senior housing units in the building.
The county executive said he's "very excited about what what's about to take place there" but he declined to elaborate on what he expects will happen.
Anzaroot Thursday afternoon confirmed he had met with Garnar to discuss the status of the project. But he said "I can't speak about what our plans are."
Anzaroot would not say whether there would be an announcement soon about the future of the old factory building. He declined to say whether he is selling the property.
