William H. Lane to renovate two downtown Binghamton buildings into apartments for students

By Journal Staff


BINGHAMTON, N.Y. — Binghamton construction firm William H. Lane Inc. says it’s renovating two historic buildings in downtown Binghamton and transforming them into an apartment complex, called the Printing House.

The Press Building at 19 Chenango St. and the Kilmer Building at 21 Chenango St. will combine to form the Printing House.

It’ll provide additional apartment options for Binghamton University students, William H. Lane said in a news release issued Tuesday. The construction firm anticipates crews will finish the project in January.

The news release didn’t indicate the project cost.

Upon completion, the Printing House will be the “largest” apartment complex in the greater Binghamton area, accommodating 308 residents, the release stated.

Crews built the Press and Kilmer Buildings in the early 1900s. A 16,300-square-foot basement links the structures. Crews will turn the space into a “high-end,” amenity space for tenants that will include hot tubs, tanning beds, and a theatre, William H. Lane said.

The Printing House, which will cater “to the needs of college students,” will offer a computer and print center, a media and video-gaming room, and study nooks in community areas available to all residents.

William H. Lane, the firm’s CEO, founded the company in 1967. The firm specializes in general construction, construction management, and design/build services, according to the release.
