The Downtown Revitalization design/build project with BBL Construction involved building a 4-story, 60,200 square foot mixed-use commercial structure on a .64-acre site at State Street and Broadway in downtown Schenectady. There is separate entrances for the cinema and office areas. The building has varying heights, based on the two-story offices built atop the theater structure. A four-story glass tower entrance adds architectural detail to the prominent elevation positioned at the corner of State Street and Broadway. The site was basically developed lot line to lot line. Bow Tie Cinema encompasses almost the entire 27,700 square foot first floor footprint. The six theaters hold 1,253 luxurious seats, state of the art sound system and film projection equipment, and an elegant lobby/concession area. The Galesi Group building offers a prominent cinema entrance and marquee at the corner. The second and third floors offer Class-A office space (33,600 square feet) which is a significant addition to the local market for commercial space. The estimated cost of this project: $13,000,000. Completion date: May 2007
