The Presbyterian Home of Lockport on High Street announced Tuesday that it will break ground at 3 p.m. April 19 on a $6.2 million renovation and expansion project.
Activities and Marketing Director Toni Parada said the project will add 28 units to the facility, bringing the total to 54. That will be the first of three phases, each expected to take seven months, he said.
The subsequent phases will entail renovation of the two 1860s homes comprising the facility. They are connected by a covered garden way, and the new units will be built in front of that.
About $4 million of the financing for the project was obtained through the sale of taxable bonds authorized by the Niagara County Industrial Development Agency, Parada said.
