Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Work to begin expansion of student housing at University Plaza in Vestal should start late spring or early summer.

That's according to Jeffrey Smetana, Vice President of Student Housing Development for Newman Development.

The Metroplex at UP will provide housing for an additional 800 students at University Plaza.

Smetana said the main complex will be built where the AIG 21st Century building currently exists. A smaller townhouse style development is planned for the space NCI occupies.

NCI is moving the call center to 1093 Clark St. in Endicott.

Smetana said demolition should begin in a few months with construction on the new student housing starting later in the summer.
