Photos: Conversion of old Carr's Warehouse displayed during open house

posted by Howard B. Owens in batavia, business, downtown, Carr's.

There was an open house this afternoon for the new mixed-use complex in Jackson Square.  

The former Carr's Department Store Warehouse is now four apartments and a downstairs office space.

One of the apartments is already rented. Thermory, a company that installs thermo-treated wood decks, has moved into the office space.

The building was purchased by developer Paul Thompson and partners, who invested more than $500,000 of their own money as well as leveraged $115,000 in state grants to complete the conversion project.

Features of the building include exposed original beams, industrial-grade wood floors and brick walls.

$115,000 in state grants translates to taxpayer dollars.1/5 of this was paid by the taxpayer..Will the city now raise the assessment of this building and recoup some money....
