GENESEO – A local property owner is looking to breathe new life into the old school bus garage on 20A in Geneseo.
The building has been a bus garage for so long it is hard for some residents to imagine it as anything else. But Sam Cottone took a look at it and saw potential for businesses.
“We’re looking at splitting it up, putting a nice facade on it,” said Cottone. “I like where the property sits. It has great parking, and is easily accessible off 20A. There’s a little bit of grass and some trees out front, and it’s impossible to miss coming up or down the hill.”
Renovations would eventually get the property ready for tenants to set up shop.
“Right now we’re just getting some architectural drawings done and looking at how best to split it up,” said Cottone. “It was not on the market long so we are fortunate to get it. We’re local, we have family here, we’re staying here.”
Cottone purchased the building from the Geneseo Central School District for $375,000.
