Bonacio Construction Begins Transformation of the Historic Neumann Center

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Renovations at the St. John Neumann Residence, nestled behind tall trees at 233 Lake Ave. in Saratoga Springs, are well underway; transforming what once was a retirement home for priests, into an independent senior living community.  

Sonny Bonacio, president of Bonacio Construction Inc., has been the force behind luxury condos, apartments, commercial offices and retail stores. Now, he’s bringing that same Bonacio touch to what he’s naming The Grove at Neumann – a 55+ active adult living community that’s set to open in late summer of 2015.

“Right now, they’re clearing a lot of the property outside of the building where one of the parking areas will be,” said Leah Palmer, marketing representative for Bonacio Construction, Inc. “They were also doing cleaning up some demo work inside, but that’s pretty much done. It’s set to be open for occupancy and for people to move in probably in August or September of next year.”

There will be 76 units available for rent at The Grove at Neumann; comprised of one bedroom, one bedroom with den, two bedrooms and two bedrooms with den.

“We just finalized floor plans and pricing,” said Palmer. “So our plan is to reach out to those on our waiting list which, right now, we have over 80 people on our waiting list. We’re going to reach out to them and get them that information. We’re going to let the people who have reached out to us have first dibs, basically, at the different options.”

The Grove at Neumann is within walking distance to downtown Saratoga Springs, shopping and dining; but with over a dozen amenities, residents may not even want to leave. Amenities include: swimming pool; gym; fitness classroom; movie theater; billiards and game room; spa; hair and nail salon; transportation services; concierge services; office with computers and printers; dining room with grab and go café; great room in the old chapel; library; outdoor barbecue space; community gardens; and covered garages.

Palmer said Bonacio Construction, Inc. is working hard to preserve the integrity and history of the former St. John Neumann Residence throughout the transformation.

“There’s a lot of historical beauty that comes with it,” said Palmer. “For example the chapel inside, it won’t be used as a chapel by any means, is certainly still going to have that historical feel and we want to go off of the beauty that’s already there.”

While there’s already close to 80 people on The Grove at Neumann’s waitlist, Palmer says it’s not too late to sign up for those interested in securing a unit.

“I would say I get between three to five people a day that reach out to me, whether it’s inquiring, asking to get on the waitlist,” said Palmer. “We’ve had a really great response so far.”
