Don Warfe’s renovation of the three-story building at 501 Main Street is underway. Brodo, the popular soup and wine bar co-owned by Warfe, will be opening a take-out only outlet at the Main Street site. The 6,000 sq.ft. building, purchased by Warfe in October 2008, has been vacant for years and was last occupied by Stewart & Benson Travel Services.
The upper floors are being converted into two residential units and the ground floor will include the Brodo space and enclosed parking accessed via an alley off E. Mohawk Street. Plans call for creating a more welcoming entrance and preserving the building’s historic façade. Recessed patios behind the facade will overlook Main Street from the second and third floor residences.
Warfe plans to occupy one of the building’s residential units. Clinton Brown Company is project architect.
