Yesterday, the developer, JMS Construction Services, Inc., issued a press release announcing their plans for the site: an "upscale apartment complex to be called 'The Falls.'" Accompanying the press release was an architectural rendering of what's to come.
The press release describes the project in this way:
"The Falls" transforms the former Greenport School on Route 66 into a community of 116 one-, two-, and three- bedroom apartments loaded with amenities, common areas and on-site management. Among the amenities within the 22 acres site will be walking trails, a dog run, a swimming pool and outdoor tennis.Of the fate of the original 1930 school building, the press release explains:
The complex will retain the historic center of the school--a handsome, brick building with large windows and high ceilings. The old school building will house most of the common areas.The original building, the brick painted gray, appears in the rendering with the sign for "The Falls" on its windowless facade facing Route 66.
