ITHACA, N.Y. — This will probably be the last update written for the Lofts @ Six Mile Creek apartment project; it’s very nearly complete.

The lower floors already have their first occupants, while on the upper levels, the Pella windows still have labels on them, indicating that interior finishing is still taking place on the most lofty of the loft units.

Outside, workers were busy cleaning off newly-laid sidewalk; exterior landscaping is up next, which will consist of weed-whacking, laying down soil, grass seed and new plantings that will hopefully enhance the Creekwalk.

It’s been nice watching this building go up, through here and on Ithaca Builds. It’s been a long, long time coming, and well-designed additions to the increasingly under-served housing market are welcome.

Some photos from a recent visit:

The Lofts at Six Mile Creek project consists of a 7-story, 49,244 square foot structure that will contain 45 rental apartment units: 3 studios, 21 1-bedroom and 21 2-bedroom units.

The building is being developed by Bloomfield/Schon + Partners out of Cincinnati, and construction is being handled by Turnbull-Wahlert Construction, also based in Cincinnati.

Leasing is being handled by CSP Management, and interested readers can apply for an apartment here or call 607-277-6961 if they feel so inclined. Prices range from $1,220 to $2,655 per month, depending on size and location of the unit.
