The owner of 637-639 Broadway,  Victor Cappelletti, of the Newburgh Commercial Development Corporation, has completely gutted this historic, commercial real estate property  on upper Broadway,Newburgh, N.Y. A portion of the building is now leased to architectural and development management firm, Barton and Logiudice, the first tenants at the historic mill building.

The building sits right atop  the Quassaick Creek (which flows to the Hudson) and at one point in its history utilized the creek for hydro power in operating 19th century manufacturing equipment.

Star Energy Custom Windows

Victor has installed over 100 new energy star custom windows keeping with the architectural integrity and feel of this historic building. All new gas and water lines have been installed, plus a completely upgraded 3-phase electrical system that will provide ample power to potential tenants, even those requiring heavy amperage needs. Zoning allows for a number of commercial permitted uses at 637-639 Broadway Newburgh, NY.

Although this transformation was no easy undertaking,  the building is well on its way to a complete restoration.

Victor’s new tenant, Barton & Loguidicea regional engineering, environmental, planning, and landscape architecture firm, saw the potential of this historic mill building and agreed to lease  2700 SF of space in the building.

Barton & Loguidice are no strangers to the city of Newburgh, they had already established a small regional office in Newburgh several years ago. With a growing demand for their engineering services, Glenn Gidaly, AICP, who oversees the Newburgh Barton & Loguidice office, realized this new location would be a key factor in attracting new talent to their firm. Their new office at 637 Broadway now has 4 employees with the goal of hiring another 7 to 8 engineering and planning professionals by years end.

The firm has 10 locations throughout New York State and has even expanded into the state of Maryland.

There are a number of major projects that Barton & Loguidice is currently working on in New York State including right here in the City of Newburgh.

Barton & Loguidice Secure Grants and Low Interest Loans For Repairs

The firm is undertaking the engineering and repair of the West Trunk Sewer system for the city of Newburgh. This portion of the City sewer system was heavily damaged during Hurricane Sandy. The firm was able to help the City secure much needed grant money and low interest loans that will help partially fund this important repair’s completion.

Other notable projects include the soon to be designed Catskill Trail, a multi-use 11 mile trail that will connect the city of Kingston to the Ashokan reservoir. Funding will be provided by the Ulster County government, which is also working with the NYC DEP which is contributing $2.5 million towards the County’s planning, design and construction of the Ulster County Rail Trail Project.

Finally,  the firm is also overseeing the $20.5 million design and construction of the Village of Monticello, NY waste water treatment facility.

The senior management at Barton & Loguidice seems delighted with the location: “We are excited to be able to be a part of the transformation and vitality unfolding in the City of Newburgh,” said Richard Straut, P.E., Principal. “While the new facility gives us room to grow and best serve our clients in the region, we are a sustainable company that actively participates in revitalizing and promoting adaptive reuse of tired and worn urban spaces, and this move embodies that philosophy.”
