Great architectural features, supportive fellow business owners and a continuation of “Downtown Beautification”. Come see what's new in New Albany- A Great Historical Downtown.

The Riverfront Redevelopment District which, if you qualify, can allow you to secure a 3-way liquor license (beer, wine and liquor) for a mere $1000 a year. The license is not portable meaning it stays as long as the business stays and is transferable at the location its tied to.

Situated between Main Street and the Ohio River. The main bldg, known as the Reisz Furniture Building is a 3 story brick with basement and a lot of windows. This building has drawn interest from those that do condo/apt conversion. The main structure is likely the best to use for renovation offering 3 stories and a basement. Each floor is about 5280sf. The addition to the south would likely be removed to allow for private street level parking. There is plenty of City parking which is the lot to the south of the site.

Come be a part of the action and continued the continued revitalization creating a new life in one of our great "Historic Downtowns" in Southern Indiana. The City of New Albany officials in the Redevelopment Department can help with projects and answer questions you may have. The City has offered additional incentives that vary with the size and investment cost of the proposed project.
