UTICA – The new design elements of the former General Electric building at 1900 Bleecker St. have been revealed. The building, which was purchased in 2018 by Bowers Development for $400,000, has been vacant for more than a decade.

The development project will include removal of hazardous materials and demolition of parts of the building. This will turn the 220,000-square-foot facility into a new 84,000-square-foot building, which will meet federal and state standards for energy efficiency and feature 20-to-30-foot high ceilings. The revamp is meant to attract industrial, manufacturing and distribution tenants to the building.

“As we undergo this transformation in buildings as iconic as 1900 Bleecker St., we want to make sure that what they become is every bit as great as what they used to be, “said Utica Mayor Robert M. Palmieri. “I’d like to thank Bowers Development for taking on this project and for believing in Utica. The investment we’re seeing is transforming this city and I’m excited for the future of this project and the future of this facility.”

Bowers Development has worked on other projects in the City of Utica, including the restoration of the security building at 120-126 Bleecker St. that now serves as the new headquarters for the local Legal Aid Society.

The company is also developing other sites in Utica, including the New Century Club at 253 Genesee St, the Kempf Building at 248-250 Genesee St. and the commercial building at 252 Genesee St.
