Scan 28

A new college housing apartment complex, Premier Living Suites, is now approximately 80 percent complete and projected to be done by May.

More than 38 modular units for Premier Living Suites were delivered in mid-October and were all installed in under a week and a half, said Naomi Himes, property manager and marketing adviser.

The units were built by Furdi’s in Fulton and transported to 247 W. Utica St. where they were raised by a 300-ton crane.

The owners of the building, Greg and Patrick Furlong, also own Furdi’s where the modules were constructed as well as additional college housing throughout the city of Oswego.

At this point most of the units have been installed, including the walls, flooring and roof.

The roof has been completely shingled and the exterior siding is also close to completion.

On the interior, the walls have been painted and each suite’s kitchen has been installed with a refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave. The rooms come completely furnished including a double bed, closet, desk, couches and TV, with fixtures now in place.

Himes said workers are beginning the process of installing the sprinkler system, security system and utilities.

“Premier Living Suites is a 30,000 square-foot modular building,” said Himes. “There was and is up to 20 people working on the construction site a day.”

The complex houses 71 beds in 17 four-bedroom suites and one three-bedroom suite. Tenants’ $890-per-month rent will include utilities, cable and Internet, garbage removal, lawn care and parking. Amenities also include a gym facility, computer lab, movie theater and game room all within the complex.

Each suite also has its own washer and dryer as well as a fully furnished patio.

Himes said as of yet about 50 students have signed leases for the fall when Premier Living Suites opens to tenants in August.
