On Thursday August 20th at 4:00pm, Bonacquisti Brothers Construction and Paragon Residential
Management will host a community event to celebrate the revitalization taking place in the city of
Cohoes with the introduction of the Warehouse 71 apartments. The event will feature a ribbon cutting
and open house providing the community a look into this newly renovated historical building of luxury apartments.
Warehouse 71, a $2.7 million dollar investment, is an “Adaptive Reuse” project that renovated a
historical warehouse originally built in 1883. Adaptive Reuse is the process of reusing an old building for a purpose other than what it was originally built or designed for. The Warehouse was built by C.M. Blaisdell to serve the textile and knitting trade in the bustling city of post-Civil War Cohoes. Close attention was paid to maintaining and preserving the original structure and interior features of the Canvass Street Warehouse.
“Our goal was to be respectful of the original building and its Architectural features, while transforming it in to a modern and unique facility.” – Paul Bonacquisti, Bonacquisti Brothers Construction.
The luxurious apartments feature affordable pricing and high end finishes including granite countertops, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, washers and dryers in every unit, exposed brick and wood beams, high ceilings, and large “tombstone-style” windows. Each of the 22 apartments is unique from the rest giving this building character that can’t be found in most modern day apartment communities.
“These new apartments are a great addition to our revitalization efforts in the City of Cohoes. This
community will help to bring more residents to the area and we thank Bonacquisti Brothers
Construction for making this investment in the City of Cohoes.” – City of Cohoes Mayor George Primeau.
“Preserving and restoring historic buildings such as Warehouse 71 give the community character while providing functionality at the same time. This building will serve as a historical marker in Cohoes, NY for years to come.” – Julian Adams Bureau of Community Preservation Services – NYS Parks, Recreation, & Historic Preservation.
