This adaptive re-use project brings new life to the historic Crescent Commons Corset factory, a vacant 1920’s brick building that encompasses an entire block of Main Street in Cortland. The renovated mixed-use facility will feature forty-seven (47) market- rate and affordable residential units with amenities including a lounge, exercise room and private courtyard. The ground floor provides 41,000 SF of commercial space.


IPD’s team of engineers utilized a highly tailored approach that kept construction costs minimized while being sensitive to practicalities and costs of property management post-completion.


This project is a partnership between Cortland-based real estate developer David Yaman and Housing Visions, a Syracuse-based nonprofit, with grant support from Empire State Development, National Grid, and the City of Cortland.
