24 4th Street
Housed in an 1871 building located in one of upstate New York’s best downtowns, Troy Innovation Garage is 14,000 square feet of custom-designed space. From 1900 and into the 1920’s the building housed Troy Automobile Exchange, a highly successful Pierce Arrow car dealership and garage. In 2016, the building underwent a $1 million rehab. Today’s post-industrial design incorporates many original materials and details. Massive steel beams, brick walls and a soaring ceiling were all exposed during the renovation. Old wood and metal were reclaimed and then recycled for use in today’s floors, stairs and wainscoting.
