CORTLANDVILLE, N.Y. – A group of developers in the central New York region is looking to construct a 66-unit housing complex in the town of Cortlandville.

The planned residential community dubbed "Starr Lite Ridge" is planned for an 11-acre parcel on the south of side of Starr Road, opposite the intersection of Abdallah Avenue.

Robert Ferris is listed as the current owner of the property, which is being bought under a purchasing contract by the Leonidas Group of Virgil LLC.

Former Greek Peak CEO and President Al Kryger submitted the plans on behalf of the group last week.

The project consists of six single-family homes, six duplex homes and eight six-family building for a total of 66 units. A recreational club/community building is also planned as part of the project.

The target population is retirees–or "downsizing empty nesters"–and young working families, according to the developer's site plan application.

In their application to the town planning board, developers say the project will address the need for affordable housing in the Cortland area.

Developers also claim the project is estimated to add approximately $6 million in new tax revenue to the town of Cortlandville.

The project was presented to the Cortlandville Town Planning Board last week. Planning board members have requested more details about the project before they decide to move forward.
