New York State Office of General Services (OGS) Commissioner RoAnn M. Destito today announced a sealed bid auction for the state-owned former Chateaugay Correctional Facility in Franklin County at 7874 State Route 11 has been postponed.
Following discussions between OGS and Empire State Development (ESD) regarding the future of the property, ESD has requested additional time to evaluate the site's potential for adaptive-reuse economic development projects.
The sealed bid auction was scheduled after a previous bid for the property, which was submitted at a live public auction on July 24, was rejected due to the failure of the bidder to meet contractual obligations.
Discussions between State and local officials on the future of the property are ongoing. Those with interest in the property should contact ESD’s Real Estate Division at firstname.lastname@example.org.
