Rendering shows what future may hold for LeMoyne Manor site

Longley Jones Management Company is currently under contract with Empire Management Companies to purchase the facility to build luxury apartments overlooking Onondaga Lake.

We're getting our first look at changes that could be coming to the vacant Le Moyne Manor banquet facility in Salina.

Longley Jones Management Company is currently under contract with Empire Management Companies to purchase the facility to build luxury apartments overlooking Onondaga Lake.

In 2016 the property was bought by EMC with plans to redevelop it with a retail building and apartments.

LeMoyne Manor was a longtime popular location for social events, but has sat vacant for several years.

It's a first look at an apartment complex that has the potential to transform a vacant property in Salina.

"It's been run down for several years, it's a really visual property along the the main street in our town, so we are really exited about a possibility for something to occur," Mark Nicotra said.

Le Moyne Manor was once a hotel and home for weddings, now a run down building , an eye sore along Old Liverpool Road.

"It's an amazing history, so we want to embrace all of those things and create something very unique to the area," Scott Dumas, director of development for Longley Jones Management Company, said.

Scott Dumas revealed a new vision to board members at the Town Hall in Salina.

"We want to them to understand we want to do something very different and something very exciting with the site," Dumas added.

Renderings show about 90 luxury apartments, an outdoor rooftop common area, and most of the parking to go underneath the building.

The developers explained they're still in the early stages with some challenges to overcome.

"We are still under contract to purchase it, cost to demo what is there now and working in the historical confines of the space there are a lot of limitations and for that reason we are really putting forth a creative plan to address it, otherwise the site as it looks now it's very unusable for anything," explained Dumas.

Mark Nicorta said the paperwork on this isn't quite in order yet so a public hearing has been pushed to next month.

"We've pushed it back to the next meeting so hopefully that can get resolved and we can have the public meeting," Nicorta added.

The next step is to get that paperwork in order and then open this up to public comments, so town leaders can determine if this should be re-zoned from commercial to residential.
