The City of
Cohoes will be hosting “Choose Cohoes”, an event designed to showcase
vacant buildings for prospective business tenants on Sunday, November 14
from noon to 3:00PM. The event will highlight selected properties that
are available for rent or sale for those looking to start their own
business or for those interested in relocating or expanding their
business to downtown Cohoes.
With assistance from multiple grant programs and private investments,
the City of Cohoes has been hard at work bringing several buildings back
to life that are now viable for tenants to open shop. These building are
located along Remsen Street which is the heart of downtown Cohoes.
Additionally, the City has made several streetscape improvements as well
as hosted several events such as the Canal Square Concert Series, Cohoes
Farmers’ Market and ExploreCohoes to slowly bring downtown Cohoes back –
one building and business at a time.
There will be representative from each of the properties as well as a
business ambassador from the community on hand to answer questions and
provide assistance. Representatives from the Cohoes Local Development
Corporation will be present to discuss loan and incentive programs that
are available for potential business tenants. This event is sponsored by
members of the Cohoes business community, the Cohoes Local Development
Corporation and the City of Cohoes.
