406 West Gray Street, Elmira
Completed September 2019
This previously uninhabitable property was vacant and abandoned for approximately 5 years. The complete restoration and remodel resulted in two 2-bedroom apartments. Rehabilitation required all new roof, electrical, plumbing, flooring, appliances, and fixtures. This project was possible because of an Empire State Poverty Reduction Initiative Grant (learn more about ESPRI and the Chemung County Landbank here.)

378 West Church Street, Elmira
"The Gillett Mansion"
Completed May 2013
One-of-a-kind restoration of a 1898 Pierce & Bickford Mansion in Elmira's Historic Near Westside. This beautiful piece of architecture is a state landmark and every part of the home has elegance in each detail.
We installed new heating and air conditioning systems, restored the original hardwood floors, and preserved valuable architecture such as the ceiling molds, incredible fireplaces, woodwork and fixtures. Extensive work was done on the exterior of the home as well.
Some upgrades include locally-made 100% cherry cabinets, a jacuzzi in each apartment, marble floors and working fireplaces in each of the bedrooms and living rooms.
This property is included on the Self-Guided Walking Tour curated by Near Westside Neighborhood Association
