Inducement Resolution

Project Details

 The proposed project includes the renovation of an existing 40,000 sq. ft. facility along with the construction of a 10,000 sq. ft. addition.  Once complete, the building will house the Thin Man Brewery which will occupy approximately 20,000 sq. ft.  28,000 sq. ft. will be leased to incubator-type tenants and a 2,000 sq. ft. tasting room is planned for the project.  ECIDA benefits will be limited to only the manufacturing and incubator space.


Thin Man, which was originally slated to move into the 155 Chandler Street location, will be moving into this location since it better serves their needs.  The 155 Chandler location was  approved by this board earlier this year under the name R&M Leasing.  Since the business began in August 2016, Thin Man sales have grown and they have signed distribution agreements with T.J. Sheehan and Remarkable Liquids which will distribute these products throughout New York State.


The existing building has been vacant for over 10 years and has been accepted into the Brownfield Cleanup Program.  Past uses at the site along with a fire in 2001 has created an environmental hazard.


This project complements the work currently underway across the street to convert the former Linde Air manufacturing complex into an industrial incubator.
