The old downtown CVS building is still vacant 9 months after it closed

0

The three-story Court Street structure that housed a pharmacy for nearly a century remains vacant several months after CVS ceased operations on the site.

A listing of the property describes it as a “19th century block” building that was built during the Civil War era with “historically significant cornice and facade windows”.

The CVS store on the site closed on November 12. Before CVS acquired the business, a Hamlin Red Cross pharmacy had operated there since 1924.

The Pyramid Brokerage Company listing puts the asking price for the property at $875,000. That’s significantly less than the price some downtown business owners were told CVS was originally after.

The listing indicates that the building has approximately 15,000 square feet of space. The available property comprises a total of five plots. It includes parking with entrances on Hawley and Washington streets.

According to the listing, the property is on the National and State Historic Registers. It also indicates that it is eligible for “historic tax credits”.

Representatives for CVS and Pyramid Brokerage Company could not be reached on Wednesday to discuss efforts to sell the property.
