Springbrook to Develop Residential Units for Persons with Disabilities in CortlandCortlandville

Cortland, NY: Springbrook has been selected by the New York State Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) as the housing support provider for the development of the Cortlandville Commons at 968 NYS Route 13 in Cortlandville. This development will create 68 new residential units of workforce housing. Springbrook has partnered with Regan Development Corporation, an experienced residential and commercial developer, who will begin construction in October 2023 with tenant occupancy planned for November 2024.

“Cortlandville Commons will add housing opportunities for people with I/DD that have been long sought-after in Cortland County. We envision ‘Cortlandville Commons’ as more than a building—we anticipate it will be a beacon of hope with just the right touch of services for people who have previously been underserved in the I/DD space,” said Kimberly Corbett, Springbrook’s Director of Community Services, chair of the Cortland County Developmental Disabilities Subcommittee, and member of the Cortland County Community Services Board. “Springbrook’s commitment to the mission for the people we support made this and other up-and-coming initiatives possible, and we are proud to be a part of the solution,” continued Corbett. Opportunities for the people residing at Cortlandville Commons will include community integration, independence, and maximum potential for self-direction and choice, some of which may be facilitated by Springbrook’s integrated service options.

The $20.4 million project will develop two connected, four-story building wings that will include 27 one-bedroom apartments, 37 two-bedroom apartments, and four three-bedroom apartments, in addition to commercial space on the ground floor. Cortland Commons will provide affordable, residential multifamily housing that targets a mix of households, which are representative of the local community and workforce, and offer integrated supported housing (mobility-adapted units) for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD). The building will feature two elevators, a community space within the building, and outdoor areas, as well as parking.

Springbrook has offices in Oneonta, Norwich, Binghamton, and Ithaca; operates homes in five counties; and offers support in 14 counties. Cortlandville Commons is not the organization’s first Integrated Supportive Housing initiative; the most notable being the Century Sunrise Residences in Johnson City, NY, which was also done in partnership with Regan Development. Opened in 2018, Century Sunrise is a historic renovation of two former warehouse buildings, with 120 tenants living in mixed-use apartments. Springbrook is the service provider for the 32 tenants receiving support through OPWDD. The organization is planning further developments in Binghamton and Syracuse and has started construction in Oneonta to develop The Ford on Main (

Springbrook will be posting updates on the Springbrook website along with a “contact us” option for community members who wish to share their perspectives on the plans and progress, in addition to leasing interest for those eligible for OPWDD services.


Springbrook provides at-home care, residential and educational services, day services, and clinical, therapeutic, and behavioral supports to over 1,100 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across New York State. With headquarters in Oneonta, NY, the organization has offices throughout the Southern Tier and employs more than 1,200 people.
