EDITOR’S NOTE: The Bricks & Mortar Report provides updates on major construction projects in Chenango County.
Former Corner Cigar building:
• The new owners of the former Corner Cigar store on North Broad St. in Norwich have begun cleaning out the space and entertaining contractors’ estimates for renovations.
• Norwich native and local lawyer Adam Spence said he purchased the downtown building to eventually house his office, but he has yet to settle on a plan for the remaining two floors of the building.
• “Our first task is to get the place tightened up,” he said. “The building’s roof leaks and the windows need replacing ... We are quite a ways away from being able to put a date on when the work will be finished.”
Chenango Memorial Hospital, Norwich:
• A new color scheme and ceiling and flooring patterns were revealed when barriers came down last week on the first renovated section of Chenango Memorial Hospital’s third floor.
