Requests for Expressions of Interest in developing the second floor of the REA Wing at Union Station in Utica are now being accepted.

The 4,200 square-foot space is located above the county-owned Railway Express Agency Wing. which houses the Oneida County Public Market adjacent to Union Station.

County Executive Anthony Picente first announced the plan to seek Requests for Expressions of Interest for the space during his State of the County Address in March.

“This unique space is ripe for development and I look forward to seeing creative ideas come in as a result of this search,” Picente said. “I believe with the right vision and execution it can really turn into something special and further expand upon the revitalization of Bagg’s Square and downtown Utica.”

Respondents may participate in an optional site visit scheduled for August 15th. Those who wish to attend should RSVP to Mark Laramie, P.E., Deputy Commissioner of Engineering at mlaramie@ocgov.net by August 13th.

Proposals must be submitted to the County Planning Department by September 12th.
