PathStone Corporation, the City Federation of Women’s Organizations (CFWO), and Ithaca Neighborhood Housing Services (INHS) were joined by over one hundred Federation members and local dignitaries at a ceremony for 100 W. Seneca St. on April 13th 2012. They celebrated a historic past and a bright future for this downtown corner lot. The History Center provided images of the home and neighborhood as it looked prior to the construction of the Women’s Community Building for this event; and images of the soon to be constructed new structure were provided for public viewing.
The Women’s Community Building will be sold in May 2012 by the CFWO to begin the immediate construction of Breckenridge Place Apartments. This is a new six story building with fifty units of accessible and affordable apartments. Breckenridge Place was named for Juanita Breckenridge, a founding member of the CFWO, to honor the 100 year history of the Federation; and is designed by HOLT Architects. PathStone Corporation and INHS are not-for-profit development partners for the $15 million Breckenridge project.
