A new, mixed-use apartment community with office and amenity-oriented space will be built at the Griffiss Business and Technology Park in Rome.

Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement on Friday.

Bonacio Construction will purchase 4.2 acres of land on Route 825 for Phase One of the project.

Phase One will include construction of two, four-story mixed-use buildings with street-level commercial space and 84 units of upper-level apartments.

The total cost of the project is $20 million.

"Griffiss Business and Technology Park is home to globally recognized businesses that employ thousands of New Yorkers in the Mohawk Valley and continue to attract top talent through innovative research, products and services," Governor Cuomo said. "This investment in Rome will further enhance the entire region by providing quality housing options close to the Griffiss Business and Technology Park, while continuing to build upon our economic development efforts in the Mohawk Valley."
