GOSHEN – A developer announced plans for a $14.5 million, 46-rental apartment and park on 3rd Street Tuesday.
Scott Sivan, an architect and real estate developer with Insite Development, announced the project during a special meeting of the Goshen Redevelopment Commission. The River Art complex would be located just north of the Hawks Building at the corner of 3rd and Jefferson streets and might also make use of the northern portion of the former furniture factory for 18 condominiums, he said.
Sivan described his plan for a five-floor U-shaped building with a second-story private courtyard and an upper-floor community room. The inside of the U would face a public park to be built along the canal, with art installations selected by a competition among local artists
"We want to literally make it a community art park," he said. "Our mission and part of our strategy is to be part of the redevelopment zone downtown. We see ourselves as becoming a central player in the zone and helping the downtown expand."
