NORWICH – Renovations at 24 East Main St. are in their final stages and the rehabilitation effort is expected to wrap up by the end of June, according to city officials.
The approximately $230,000 project was made possible through a third round of Restore New York grant money – totaling $200,000 – with the city contributing the remaining $30,000. The vacant, 3,850 square foot structure – formerly home to Frames Unlimited – will feature a completely redesigned commercial space on the ground floor and a pair of highly efficient, one bedroom apartments on the second floor.
According to Code Enforcement Officer Jason Lawrence, the structure was completely gutted in the spring of 2010, following the city’s successful application for Restore New York funding. Renovations, which began that summer, are running right on schedule, he added.
