In January of 2020 Ticonderoga Revitalization Alliance (Ti-Alliance) received a $20,000 grant from the State of New York’s Main Street Grant Program to conduct a feasibility study on three downtown Ticonderoga buildings. The study was undertaken in two parts. The first part, performed by Saratoga-based Camoin310, provided a thorough market study of our residential and tourist markets and recommended potential sustainable uses of the buildings. The second part of the study, provided by Perry, NY-based In.Site:Architecture, performed structural assessments, code analysis and order-of-magnitude budgets to help current owners create and advance strategies for redevelopment of their buildings.
The buildings that received the analyses included the Agway Building (74 Montcalm St.), the Sears Building (85 Montcalm St.), and the Rathbun Building (110 Montcalm St.). View the full report HERE.
The goal of Ti-Alliance is to assist these building owners in creating strategies for these great buildings. Through partnership with the owners and the Ti Area Chamber of Commerce we hope to find or build the right businesses that can add to the character and sustainability of downtown Ticonderoga.
The $20,000 from the state was matched with $5,000 from Ti-Alliance. There was no cost to the town or to the building owners for this excellent professional analysis.
