Dwelling Place, in conjunction with Pine Rest, has opened the Herkimer building doors to allow the first wave of residents to settle into their new apartments at 323 South Division Avenue. Fifty-five new units have been filled at the beginning of this week, the first in a process of habitization that will go through March of next year. Dwelling Place projects to have 30 people in by the end of January, 60 by February's end and seven by the end of March. An open house will be held in the spring.
It wasn’t exactly “Dwelling Place Day” at a recent Downtown Development Authority meeting, but the prominent and highly regarded nonprofit housing developer had a good day, despite the lack of such a declaration.
