Mark Twain Building renovations revealed



Elmira, New York – An update on the Historic Mark Twain Building in Elmira, has been announced by Capriotti Properties, including plans for a new sushi bar, outdoor seating, and the restoration of the building’s exterior.

According to Capriotti, the upper half of the 8-story building is set to be complete by the end of the month. After the 68 luxury apartments are complete, Capriotti plans to begin pressure washing the exterior of the building. This process will remove decades of grime and reveal stonework throughout the building’s façade, they said.

In collaboration with Beijing Garden, future plans announced by the real estate developer include a sushi bar on the third floor. The new sushi bar plans to include outdoor seating overlooking Wisner Park. An even larger outdoor space will be placed on the second floor facing Main Street, with plans for seating and an rooftop garden.

Capriotti plans to return to Baldwin Street for further development after completing renovations on the Mark Twain Building. Other projects being handled by the company include 110 N. Main, an upcoming development at the former Iszard’s building, and the previously announced commercial space rentals at 1-8 Clemens Square.
