HOLLEY – One of the last touches on a $17 million transformation of the former Holley High School was completed this week when six new columns were put on the front of the building.

Delivery of the columns was delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The columns give the building a final exclamation point.

Home Leasing has turned the building, which was vacant for more than two decades, into 41 apartments and the village offices. The apartments include one studio, 35 one-bedrooms, and five two-bedroom apartments.

The building was last used as a school in 1975.  It was last used by a manufacturing company, Liftec, which went bankrupt in the 1990s.

The building was nearly done in August, but Home Leasing was still waiting on delivery of the columns.
