Academy Place Apartments Win at Brick by Brick Awards

Business First


Academy Place Apartments & Community Center won the Business First Brick by Brick Award for Best Green Rehab of an Existing Building.

The renovation of this historic school building brings together mixed-use components of affordable senior housing, community recreation and much-needed office space for the Village of Gowanda. 

This project brings a vibrant sense of community to a building that was empty and unused.  The project met the Green Buidling Initiative standards through NY Division of Housing and Community Renewal for high-efficiency buildings.  It also earned the Energy Star Building rating from NYSERDA and was selected to receive a public grant for the installation of a 10kw photovoltaic solar panel system to reduce electrical consumption.
