Sidewalk to Close for Acorn Corner Work
Exterior restoration work of old hotel starts Monday
A portion of the sidewalk on South DePeyster Street will close starting Monday for work on Acorn Corner.
Restoration work starts on the old hotel Monday, and as a result the city will close a portion of the sidewalk on the western side of South DePeyster Street between Alley 4 and East Main Street.
The exterior work is one of the first steps in restoration of the nearly 100-year-old building, which Acorn Alley developer Ron Burbick bought from the city last year to redevelop the long vacant property.
Burbick told Kent Patch in a previous interview that nearly 100 percent of all the brick facade grout will be replaced as part of the exterior renovation.
