PLATTSBURGH – The Board of Directors and staff of the Strand Center for the Arts have reached a major Downtown Revitalization Initiative Grant milestone.
Construction will soon begin on both of its properties to fulfill a commitment made to the nonprofit’s program in 2017, according to a news release.
The Strand Theater at 25 Brinkerhoff St. will receive final treatments towards its overall restoration, focusing on function, safety, technical updates and final appearance.
The upgrades will allow for better produced and more varied programming as the Strand moves forward.
The balance of the grant focuses on the former Federal Building at 23 Brinkerhoff St. the home of The Strand Center for the Arts.
For years, this property has housed the Box Office, classes, studios, Main Gallery, Clay Studio, and more.
The Strand is enthusiastic as these…
