OGDENSBURG, New York (WWNY) - United Helpers plans to build a riverfront development and convert a former Ogdensburg adult home into apartments.

Land is being cleared now just off State Route 37 for a mixed-use development at the former Pythian Beach. The development would cover 27 acres, including 1,600 feet of riverfront on the St. Lawrence River.

United Helpers has asked the city of Ogdensburg to extend water and sewer service to the site.

Ogdensburg City Manager Stephen Jellie will meet with United Helpers officials next week to talk about their plans. Even though the project is outside city limits, Jellie said he is encouraged Ogdensburg can benefit from it and is willing to help.

United Helpers’ nursing home adjacent to the former adult home closed recently.

So far, there are no plans for reusing those buildings.
