Downtown buildings will get nearly $20M in rehabilitation as a result of funding received this month by Neighbors of Watertown. The work includes a sprucing up of the former Empsall's store and the Brighton Apartment overhead.
One has to wonder about the future of another downtown project in the pipeline and that is the Mercy Heights development. Now that the top people at COR are charged with bribery and the state's economic development efforts are more suspect, it's an open question whether this effort proceeds.
If not, the roughly $70M project will wither.
