Three renovation projects proposed by the Jeremiah Partnership will be reviewed at this morning’s Planning Board meeting. The Broadway, Genesee Street and Main Street buildings are targeted for upgrades by three cooperating religious organizations.
• 437 Broadway – Pentecostal Temple proposes to renovate the vacant three-story building at the corner of Spring Street (entry image). The 12,180 sq.ft. building will be a mix of retail and business space.
• 656 Genesee Street – Greater Refuge Temple proposes to reuse the two-story, 15,000 sq.ft. building (image below). It will be used for a conference and business services facility.
• 1461 Main Street – Bethel Community Development Corporation proposes to upgrade a one-story building that houses an Early Head Start program.
Each of the projects received funding earlier this year from the Restore New York program. In all, the City received $14.2 million in state grant money. The funding will be used to demolish blighted structures and to assist in the redevelopment of properties.
