State Spending Millions to Renovate Saratoga Bathhouse for Wellness Center

posted by WGY News - 



Some buildings at the Saratoga Spa State Park will get some pampering.

A 2.2 million renovation will convert the currently empty Roosevelt II Bathhouse into a home for Coesa Holistic Wellness Center and other future tenants, according to Governor Cuomo.  The investment is considered to be a public-private partnership. In a statement, Libby Coreno, Esq., identified as co-chair of the Coesa, Inc. Board of Directors said, "We are so excited to be launching a $1 million capital campaign to allow for the finishing of the interior of the space of Roosevelt II, the hiring of an executive director and a retreat coordinator, as well as assisting in the first two years of operations."

Here's more from the Governor's press release:

"A $2.2 million renovation project will convert the 1930s Georgian Revival style bathhouse into a multi-purpose facility for Coesa and additional future tenants. The 18,000-foot facility will have a renewed front lobby, new public restrooms, updated utilities, and a new tenant space for the Coesa Wellness Center. The local holistic wellness community will offer classes and programs to inspire and support people who desire a healthier self and world, including programs on leadership, mindfulness, workplace culture and therapeutic yoga teacher training."

Over $300,000 in additional state money will be spent to rehabilitate roofs, masonry and the plaster ceilings of the Hall of Springs and Administration Buildings Arcades.
