Camoin 310 is proud to be partnering with Lewis County Economic Development (IDA) in redeveloping a former industrial property in Lyonsdale, N.Y. The IDA has released a Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) that seeks to identify respondents interested in acquiring and redeveloping the 46-acre former industrial property at 3823 Marmon Road, Lyons Falls, NY.
“The IDA board and staff welcomes creative redevelopment ideas and concepts that will take advantage of the assets Lewis County offers, such as agriculture, our natural resources, and outdoor recreation and tourism industries. We look forward to seeing proposals that create jobs and enhance the local tax base.” said Executive Director Brittany Davis.
Up until 2020, the property had been used as a bio-mass to electricity facility and still features infrastructure that can be used by a future occupant of the site. After being acquired by Lewis County Economic Development, other obsolete facilities have been cleared from the site to create areas ready for new construction. The property is located adjacent to an active paper mill and the Moose River and sits just outside the boundary of New York’s Adirondack Park.
Lewis County Economic Development officials see great potential in the property, including several uses that would fit with the site and the potential to sub-divide the property for multiple uses. “The proximity to water, timber and our strong agricultural base present a wide variety of development opportunities,” Davis said. “The property could take on a similar role as an industrial site, but we could also see the site used for housing or recreation. We are looking forward to what creative ideas and concepts result from the RFEI process.”
Abundant resources, thriving industry clusters and a desirable quality of life have fostered the ideal balance of people, prosperity, and planet in Lewis County. Strategically located just a short drive from many of the country's major cities, Lewis County is centrally located to where you need to go. With its strategic advantage, low cost of living and inexpensive housing, Lewis County is the perfect place for business success in a beautiful country setting.
Brief Expressions of Interest are being accepted through March 26, 2021. The document can be downloaded by visiting the Lewis County Economic Development website: www.naturallylewis.com/lyonsdale-development-opportunity/lyonsdale-development-opportunity.
Officials will use the preliminary information provided by respondents to chart the next steps for the disposition of the property, which may include asking respondents to submit a full proposal for the property.
