“We’ve been trying to revive the downtown for 25 years. We finally have some steam up on the effort.”
Buddy Kast, Town Manager
“Working together, we can save these buildings and breathe some new life into downtown.”
Joe Fortier, Owner, Taylor Hollow Construction
The project at 208 and 210 Main Street in Narrows addresses dual community needs: space for town offices and a desire for affordable rental units. The town had been contemplating relocating offices for a while. A market study further clarified the demand for convenient rental apartments. An area developer with a successful portfolio of mixed-use historic rehabilitation projects presented a concept to repurpose a 1940s-era building at the heart of the town.
The completed project includes refurbished space for the Town of Narrows offices and additional commercial space for rent. Upper stories house eight new affordable rental apartments.
