GLENS FALLS — Elizabeth Miller, the owner of The Park Theater, has bought the building across the street for $500,000.
Miller acquired the building at 15-25 Park St., on the corner of Park and Elm, from Halcyon Properties Inc. on Jan. 25, according to Warren County deed records.
Miller said she has no specific plans for the building at this point.
The three-story building currently houses a variety of businesses, including Charlie’s Vacuum and Small Appliance Repair, the Park Street Bar and the 42 Degrees glass blowing shop. It has nearly 21,000 square feet of space (about half a football field) and is assessed at $228,000.
Miller is president of Miller Mechanical Services of Glens Falls, which specializes in metal fabrication and maintenance of pulp and paper industry machinery.
She bought The Park Theater in 2014. The theater reopened in April 2018 after a $3 million renovation, which began in 2015. The work includes a circular glass elevator, a more than 2,000-square-foot performance space with a handmade proscenium arch, a blue-domed lobby and iridescent chandelier. There is also the 77-seat Doc’s Restaurant in the building. The theater is hosting live music, weddings, films, dance parties and comedy and dramatic acts. The project received a $600,000 regional economic development grant.
She also owns the building at 78 Lawrence St., which formerly was home to The Post-Star’s advertising and business operations, and the building at 19 Ridge St., which houses Laura’s Vintage.
