Spa Apartments in Clifton Springs

January 19, 2018

Rochester's Cornerstone Group, Ltd. is completing a video which will contain interviews with members of the Spa Apts community as well as other members of the community who have recollections of the rich and fabulous history of the Spa Apts building. There are residents living at Spa Apts who came to work there as teenagers in the early 1940s.  The purpose is to capture any of the memories that residents and townspeople have of the building when it was a nationally known hospital, Spa Therapy Facility and Sanitorium.

A professional production firm has been engaged to complete the video.

Rochester’s Cornerstone Group, Ltd. renovated the Spa Apartments in Clifton Springs, New York. The building was originally constructed in 1892 as the Clifton Springs Sanitarium and was converted in 1974 to a 109-unit senior apartment building. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Spa Apartments includes a chapel that has a favrile glass mosaic of the Last Supper designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. This mosaic is featured in "Tiffany's Glass Mosaics," a 2017 publication of The Corning Museum of Glass.  The chapel is also home to a historic Williams and Charles Pilcher organ.

The renovation of the 109-unit senior apartment building includes new kitchens and bathrooms, flooring, interior doors, programmable thermostats, replacement of electric heat, asbestos abatement, and new entry-door hardware. Windows and roofs were completely replaced, elevators refurbished and improvements made to common areas.

Funding for this housing came from New York State Housing Finance Agency, U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Raymond James Tax Credits, Inc. and Citizens Bank. Rochester’s Cornerstone Group, Ltd. and Home Leasing,LLC were co-developers of this undertaking. 

New York State Housing Finance Agency provided bond financing.
