[ARCHIVED] Statement by Schenectady Officials on $2.3M Restore NY Round 6 Award for Wedgeway/Kresge Buildings


Anthony Jasenski, Chair of the Schenectady County Legislature
“Restoring the Wedgeway Building continues the revitalization of downtown Schenectady while preserving its historic charm. We thank Governor Hochul and ESD for supporting this project with Restore NY grant funds, which will help breathe new life into this beloved building and transform the corner of State Street and Erie Boulevard, one of the most traveled intersections in downtown.”

Mayor Gary McCarthy
“The restoration of these vacant, blighted, and historically significant structures in the heart of our community will continue the momentum and rebirth we’re witnessing in downtown Schenectady. Over the last several years these buildings have continued to deteriorate, and their rehabilitation has been long overdue. We are grateful for the support of our local unified economic development team led by Metroplex and extend our sincere thanks to Governor Hochul and Empire State Development for their support of this project.”

Ray Gillen, Schenectady County Metroplex Development Authority
“We are extremely grateful to Governor Hochul and Empire State Development for making Schenectady’s hope for a restored Wedgeway Building a reality. Our unified economic development team is thrilled to learn that our Restore NY grant application has been approved. We thank the County Legislature, Mayor McCarthy, the City Council and the Metroplex board for their unwavering support for this project. We also thank Marc Paquin at Cass Hill Development for his commitment to restoring the Wedgeway and Kresge buildings as both played a key role in Schenectady’s rich history.”
