LOUISVILLE The St. Lawrence Valley River Development Agency plans to make approximately $60,000 in repairs to its two buildings in the Massena Industrial Park.
The buildings at 12 Commerce Drive were bought in 2011.
The buildings were unoccupied for a number of years before we acquired them, so there are some renovations and modernization investments that need to be made in the facilities, Industrial Development Agency CEO Patrick J. Kelly said Tuesday.
The repairs will include improvements to plumbing, replacement of deteriorating doors and general utility replacements, according to River Agency board members.
The changes are intended to make the buildings more marketable to potential investors and to increase their readiness for occupancies, Mr. Kelly said.
Approximately 29,000 square feet is available for rent in two buildings. Fockler Industries, the only tenant, occupies 9,000 square feet.
The funding was provided by a grant through the Northern New York Regional Economic Development Council.
Repairs will take place early this year, after a formal grant agreement is signed between the River Agency and the Economic Development Council, Mr. Kelly said.
