City Seeks Proposals For Rehabilitation of Historic South Side Building

7/08/2020

(BINGHAMTON, N.Y.) — Mayor Richard C. David on Wednesday announced the City is seeking proposals for the rehabilitation of 92 Park Ave., a historic mixed-use property built in the late 1800s.

“This historic property in a beautiful South Side neighborhood deserves a comprehensive renovation plan,” said Mayor David. “After years of neglect, the building is a source of blight on a heavily trafficked street. Instead of demolition, the City is eager to support historic rehabilitation efforts that clean up the property and create another neighborhood anchor.”

The City acquired 92 Park Ave. from Broome County in 2016 following tax foreclosure.

A variety of businesses have occupied the two-story building over the years, including a cobbler, a bookstore and a grocery store. It has been vacant for several years.

Individuals, firms or non-profits interested in submitting a proposal for rehabilitation must complete a two-page questionnaire about intended use of the property, proposed project timeline and cost, plans for rehabilitation and funding.

The questionnaire is attached and can be found on the City’s website at https://bit.ly/2CeKUn5.

Responses should be submitted as a PDF by email to jmberling@cityofbinghamton.com

The deadline for proposals is 4 p.m. on Aug. 5.

For more information, contact the Department of Planning at (607) 772-7028.
