Empire Riverfront Ventures

The Project as considered by the GCIDA is the first phase of a series of projects that will focus on the adaptive reuse of former industrial and commercial buildings on the Village of Coxsackie waterfront. When completed, the projects will have a significant impact on the community and will be transformative to the Village’s underutilized central business district. The Project considered by the GCIDA involves an adaptive reuse of a former industrial site into a hospitality use.

The Project involves two components on the same parcel. Component 1 is the development of a +/- 12,000 sqft event facility that is targeted at multiple uses such as weddings, parties, corporate events, and others. The facility will be called The Wire and will include a larger space that can accommodate as many as 500 people and a smaller space for parties of +/- 200. The component will result in a year round facility and will include large open event areas, a bar, prep kitchens, and a suite for bridal parties. Component 2 of the Project, called The Newbury, will involve the reuse of another industrial building on the parcel that will be converted to a 40 room boutique hotel. The existing structure will have three new floors added for the hotel rooms with the existing ground floor used for small meeting rooms, utilities, lobby, and front desk.
