Harbor View Square will be a new 86,000-square-foot mixed-use complex located within walking distance of downtown Oswego and the Lake Ontario waterfront. The property will feature a roof deck which will provide a front row seat for watching the fireworks over the harbor during Haborfest.
The Oswego Renaissance Association (ORA) is a non-profit organization that offers grants to residents in the City of Oswego to improve their homes. In 2017, more than $2 million was invested in Oswego by more than 150 residents who received grants through the Renaissance Block Challenge, Neighborhood Pride or Paint Oswego initiatives.
Fulton Block Builders, seeing the success of ORA, created a similar, all-volunteer organization in the City of Fulton. In 2018, nearly $500,000 was granted to homeowners by Fulton Block Builders. Those homeowners invested 3.5 times that amount in their properties. In total, 212 properties on 24 blocks were improved. In addition, it brought neighbors out of their homes to get to know each other better.
