The Residences at Canalside was developed on 2.7 acres along the Erie Canal on a site that was formerly home to the village public works department. Through an RFP process, the village sought to maximize the use of the property for housing to strengthen the core of the community.
Design of the project provided a new housing option in the community for empty nesters wishing to remain in the community and enhanced village investments that were made in constructing a promenade along the canal. The design overcame challenges of poor soil conditions with a podium design with an elevated slab supported by 200 helical columns. A collaborative approach was used with village officials to incorporate design features that were inspired by the history of one of the country’s first canal towns.
Key features and amenities include an outdoor plaza with community gathering space oriented to the canal, docking that provides access for canoes and kayaks to the canal, a club room and exercise facilities, and enclosed heated parking and storage for bikes and small watercraft.
