COHOES - The renaissance continues on Remsen Street in downtown Cohoes. On Tuesday, NewsChannel 13 showed you a new restaurant that opened in a building damaged by fire in 2018.

Now a young entrepreneurial couple truly had to think outside the box to transform an old building at 95 Remsen Street into modern living space.

It is another sign in the community that vacancy is being turned into vibrancy.

The ribbon cutting Thursday was kind of a renovation celebration of the old Kresge Building. It was also symbolic of the energy, ingenuity, and the entrepreneurship that is flooding back into Cohoes.

The upper floors of this old brick building have been transformed into modern micro apartments. There are eight of them.

The project was a longtime dream of developers Terri and Luke Gladue.

They purchased the building two years ago and began the million-dollar renovation using their own sweat equity.

They also received a state grant for $630,000.

They say the finished product is better than they ever dreamed it would be.

Take a look inside, by watching the video of Dan Levy's story.
