The Arts Center of the Capital Region

Troy, NY

The heavily deteriorated historical buildings at 261-271 River Street in downtown Troy were evaluated structurally for conversion into a new center for the arts. Ryan-Biggs developed repair and reinforcing details to salvage the important structures and details to accommodate the new program. These included column removal, stair and elevator installations, and other modifications to convert the six adjoining buildings into one arts facility that includes exhibit, studio spaces, and a “black box” theatre.
