UTICA, N.Y. -- A meet-and-greet event was held Friday for businesses interested in Utica’s proposed Nexus Center.
Subcontractors were encouraged to attend the session, which was organized by Gaetano Construction and The Pike Company at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel on Lafayette Street in Utica.
The new sports facility would be adjacent to the Adirondack Bank Center, and would be designed for tournament-based recreation play, utilized for ice hockey, box lacrosse, soccer and e-sports.
In January, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that the sports complex will receive $22 million in state funding.
The center is part of the U District plan, which also includes a casino and a beer museum.
