Edelmann said he cannot thank town officials and staff enough for "providing an atmosphere that allowed for continued permitting and opening progress." He further thanked Conroy and Conroy Contractors, who were hired to perform the work at the site.
Cumberland 12 is merely the beginning of the renovation of the former North Country Shopping Center plaza, said Edelmann. The existing shopping center building will eventually be demolished, with 600,000-square-feet of commercial buildings expected to take its place.
"We still have a lot of work to do for further development and look forward to working on our small role in helping create jobs and bring a new diversity of entertainment, dining and retail options to Plattsburgh," said Edelmann.
