1900 Bleecker Street

Immediate Availability: Contact Mike Licata (315) 929 0007

Location: 1900 Bleecker Street, Utica, New York

Building Size: 84,000 SF

Project Scope: Asbestos abatement, Demolition, Remediation, New Construction

Outcome: In progress

Our Plan

1900 Bleecker Street is a vacant property located at the corner of Bleecker and Oscar Streets in Utica, NY. Formerly contaminated with asbestos, PCB’s and lead based paint, the previous building became an attraction for vandalism and neighborhood blight. A significant portion of the building required demolition, and the remainder was in need of renovations including the roof, windows, HVAC systems, plumbing, electric, and gas services. When finished, 1900 Bleecker Street will be a newly renovated office building with a distribution/warehousing component on a major roadway leading into the central business district of Utica, and will eventually be home to a number of businesses providing jobs to the area.

One of the core goals of the City of Utica is to revitalize the downtown central business district, which requires methods of attracting both residents and businesses to the area. By helping restore this structure and attracting jobs to the neighborhood, an environment is established promoting opportunities for people to live and work in the area.

120 Barlow Street

120 Barlow Street

Location: 120 Barlow Street, Canastota, New York

Building Size: 54,800 SF

Project Scope: Asbestos Abatement, Demolition, Remediation, New Construction  

Outcome: Fully Leased

Our Plan

To date, this project is probably our biggest success story. Located adjacent to the Erie Canal in Canastota, NY, the site at 120 Barlow Street is rich in manufacturing history. Lumber, glass, farm wagons, military supplies, buses, and motor homes were all manufactured here for over a century. By the early 1990’s, the facility was operating as a recycling plant. In 1994, a massive fire erupted which burned the entire 220,000 sq. foot  facility to the ground. All that was left was a steel skeleton and small outbuilding. For the past two decades, the property has remained blighted, jobless, and plagued with legacy environmental issues.

Over the years, several companies expressed interest in rebuilding at the site, however, in each instance environmental liability was a deal killer. Bowers Development was made aware of the property through the Madison County IDA, who felt our skill set and background in environmental consulting was needed to make this property viable for redevelopment again.

After gaining site control, we aggressively marketed various parties in order to secure a commitment for redeveloping the site. Dutchland Plastics, a plastics manufacturer headquartered in Wisconsin, emerged as our tenant. Dutchland Plastics moved into the new building in August 2018 and will be actively manufacturing plastics products for the next 10 years at Barlow Street.

One of the core goals of the City of Canastota is to revitalize the local community and to undertake initiatives to attract residents and businesses to live, work and play in the area. The new building location is walking distance from a bus route and offers an opportunity for employees to work without having to own a car. The project will also be a catalyst for revitalization in the entire neighborhood.
