2014 Five to Revive announced

5Revive-2014-1-small

Today, we announced our 2014 Five to Revive list. The Five to Revive is a list of historic properties in our region that we have identified to be in need of targeted revitalization. Whether buildings, landscapes, or structures, they are significant historic properties whose rehabilitations can become catalytic projects for the neighborhoods and communities that surround them.

Each year, these five properties become priority projects for our staff and programs as we work collaboratively with owners, municipal officials, and developers to facilitate investment and foster rehabilitation. The ultimate goal is to return these important historic resources to a place of prominence in their respective communities, as economic and social assets that spark even more investment and revitalization.

Our inaugural 2013 Five to Revive properties have moved closer to that goal: The Olmsted Pedestrian Bridges in Genesee Valley Park were included in the Preservation League of New York State’s statewide endangered properties list and a statewide network of stakeholders are working towards developing a plan to fund rehabilitation. Home Properties LLC and Edgemere Development announced plans to rehabilitate the Eastman Dental Dispensary into affordable senior housing. Despite a major setback from the flooding in Penn Yan this summer, the Pennsylvania Yankee Theater Company have been completing a Master Plan for the building. Finally, Landmark Society staff have been working closely with officials in the Village of Holley to market the High School to developers. We are also assisting the Village as they seek to list the High School in the National Register of Historic Places as part of a downtown historic district. These properties, and all future Five to Revive, will remain on the list until their future is secure.
