    Description

    This is a remarkable opportunity for a developer to cash in on the next big gentrification in the Hudson Valley/Catskills: a 2.5-acre parcel with Hudson River frontage for a deep water marina. The sleepy hamlet of Athens -- but sleepy for not much longer -- is ideally situated to take off as a destination: just a few minutes drive from both (somewhat played-out) Hudson and the New York State Thruway, featuring beautiful period houses as early as 1815, some of which still remain ripe for restoration. We are given to understand from the owners, who are longtime residents, that the town of Athens is very open to this commercial site being used as a residential development. Just imagine condos and/or townhouses attached to high end deep water marina with all the activities available to Hudson River frontage, plenty of parking, and a short walk into the center of the village. (Even in winter it can offer the stunning sight of ice-sailing.) Currently a European-car repair shop, the site is currently undergoing a Phase One environmental inspection and offers infrastructure for building. The adjacent building was formerly a deli and can easily be adapted into the footprint. There is already a boat launch and marina with electric, municipal water and sewer at the site. Athens gained recognition as the setting for Steven Spielberg's The War of the Worlds in 2005, but now it's time is surely right around the corner.
