Housing Development

ACEDC began building spec homes on in-fill lots in the City of Corning.  Then it became difficult to find buildable lots at a price to make a new build affordable.  In 1997, ACEDC partnered with the City of Corning and Corning Municipal Utilities to create a 31-lot subdivision.  In 1999, Spring Lake Subdivision sold it’s first lot.  ACEDC then began building at Spring Lake Subdivision. ACEDC builds one spec home at a time.  When that house sells, another one is started.  That subdivision is about full, so ACEDC is looking for new opportunities to grow housing in Adams County.

ACEDC also worked with investors to create Riverview Apartments in the early 2000s as a low-rent housing initiative.  ACEDC continues to work with the City of Corning to find more opportunities for housing.

ACEDC, through its Main Street Corning program also encourages downtown upper story housing, and has assisted building owners in finding funding to create more housing downtown.

Currently, ACEDC is working with a development group to create Pinecreek Meadows, a 55+ cooperative living group, that would build 20 private units with some shared living space.  The two-story building would have underground parking and two elevators to serve the residents.
