City-assigned DRI projects all in progress

PLATTSBURGH — It’s been three years since New York state awarded the City of Plattsburgh $10 million to help rejuvenate its downtown.

Known as the Downtown Revitalization Initiative, those funds were allocated to 10 projects that hoped to revamp that city corridor.

Six of the projects — Durkee Street Site, Dock Street Waterfront District, the Downtown Grant Program, Riverfront Access, Downtown Streetscape Improvements, and Marketing, Branding and Signage Strategy — were to be executed with the guidance of city leadership.

A project for Albany County-based developer Prime Plattsburgh LLC to transform the Durkee Street parking lot into a mixed-use development received $4.3 million, the largest portion of the DRI funds.
