1524 Main Gets a Paint Job

Sinatra & Company Realty is busy preparing 1524 Main Street for mixed use occupancy. Once finished, the upper floors will consist of two “really nice” apartments, according to developer Nick Sinatra. Sinatra also says that the first floor is close to being rented – “an announcement can’t be made yet.”


Sinatra says that he was hesitant to paint the building, but there was already paint on it, and removing the paint “would have been risky to the structure.” Instead, they worked with NYS Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) to identify a historic paint color that would allow the Sinatra to go after historic tax credits.

Seeing the result of the gray paint, as it is being applied, does give the two neighboring buildings a distinct look.


Formerly a run down liquor store (above), 1524 now has a new storefront facade, and the architectural elements (columns, etc.) will be painted black, with white accents, which will help the building to “pop”.


Sinatra’s other building – 1526 Main – located next door, features tenants such as The Public, Barre Centric, and Ashker’s. Currently Ashker’s is using its space for catering, private parties, and yoga classes, but plans on opening a full service juice bar at some point.
