The Putnam Hotel and the surrounding block represent the most prominent location in downtown Bennington, Vermont. Having fallen into disrepair, the architecturally significant properties have been underutilized for years, perpetuating a state of decline in the downtown. Revitalization of these celebrated buildings will be a critical economic infusion into Bennington’s downtown, creating a vibrant, mixed-use neighborhood. The vision includes in-town living, attractive retail, and office space, providing jobs and important amenities like a neighborhood grocery and restaurants.
The project was initiated by the Bennington Redevelopment Group (BRG), a consortium of major institutions, businesses and civic leaders in the Town. With development consulting services from M&S Development, BRG are raising capital, securing tenants and renovating the property.
