$22 Million Project Transforms Endicott School Into 61 Apartments
An old Endicott school that once was used by IBM and a bogus basketball academy has been turned into an apartment complex.
The Henry B. Endicott School on Jackson Avenue was in such bad shape that Broome-Tioga BOCES officials were happy to unload the property to Marchuska Development for $50,000 in 2014.
Marchuska rented space at the site to a church and other entities, including the purported "elite" basketball academy AAUCONNECT that bilked dozens of families out of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
The site was sold for $750,000 to Syracuse-based Housing Visions in 2019.
A $22 million project that received support from state taxpayers has been completed.
The 61-unit apartment complex has been named "Endicott Square." Officials say 15 apartments will be rented to "formerly homeless families who will have access to on-site supportive services."
