Riverside Suites Elmira NY

Riverside Suites Elmira NY

Riverside is downtown Elmira’s revolutionary new project to bring a historic 1908 Pierce & Bickford building back to vibrant, exciting life. Located at 231 West Water Street in the former Riverside Florist building, the new project will offer retail shops on the ground floor, an exciting new concept in office space on the second floor, and luxury living on the third and fourth floors.

Owners Mike and Gina Mitchell moved to Elmira in 1989; they have continued to expand their business presence in the community since then, and have made a commitment to good citizenship as well.

The Riverside project features two retail storefronts on the ground floor. The second floor features The Offices@Riverside, and innovative full-floor executive suite, providing flexibility at a cost that makes sense. Features have the option of fully-furnished offices with flexible terms, including a variety of professional administrative support services on a smart “pay-per-use” basis. For new or expanding businesses, small to large corporations, or local companies feeling the squeeze in traditional office spaces, the project will provide all the space, staff and equipment required. On the third and fourth floors, the project offers 4 luxury loft apartments featuring city and river views. The residences will feature solid surface countertops, ceramic tile and high-end appliances.

The project is funded through the innovative use of a grant from Restore New York of $403,000 and from the New York Main Street program of $70,000. Southern Tier Economic Growth and REDEC assisted with project funding. The funds are combined with the Mitchells’ investment through the new corporation set up to administer the project, Riverside Suites LLC. The building is located in the Empire Zone, and demonstrates that economic development programs are working in New York. The total value of this project will be over a million dollars and bring to life a building that has been vacant for over five years.
