Building Wide Re-Development Project

669 River Street, located in Troy, NY, is the former home of William Connors Paint Manufacturing Company.  In August of 2016, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places due to the significance to architecture, engineering and industry.


This re-development project currently in design includes a micro-brewery in the basement and first floors, a business incubation space on the second floor, and apartments on the third floor. The project also includes a new fire sprinkler system throughout, new fire alarm system, new roof-mounted photovoltaics to assist in offsetting energy usage of the facility, period style-custom LED light fixtures, emergency back-up generator, kitchen exhaust system for the small kitchen within the brewery, and a building wide energy management system.


Due to the historic significance of this building, the existing structure was required to be left exposed, thus not allowing for any of the HVAC, plumbing and electrical systems to be hidden.  JSE is working very closely with the architect on non-obtrusive mechanical systems that, while exposed, will not be focal point so the patrons can focus on the historic architecture.
