The APT Foundation’s new outpatient substance abuse clinic at 184 Front Ave. is well underway and is expected to be open in July, the foundation and its lender say.
The methadone clinic, which drew criticism from prospective neighbors and other residents last year as it made its way through the zoning process, is being built on the former site of Joseph F. Kelly Co. construction.
First Niagara Financial Group recently provided the APT Foundation with a $1.3 million construction-to-permanent-mortgage loan, the bank said in a release.
APT is using the loan to buy the former Kelly building — now demolished — and build a new 10,000-square-foot treatment facility, the release said. The new building, which the Planning and Zoning Commission approved July 14, 2015, at this point is partially complete.
