The Waterbury Train Station (circa 1875) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can read more on the Vermont Division for Historic Preservation website (part of the Agency of Commerce and Community Development) here: https://accd.vermont.gov/historic-preservation.
The building is a jewel in the center of town and faces the town park. This is an opportunity for the right organization to lease a very unique space in the center of Waterbury, Vermont. The right tenant would be financially viable in support of the building owner, Revitalizing Waterbury, be a good fit as a steward attending to the historical nature of the building, and have the desire to be part of the local community as a complimentary business to others within the town. Preference will be given to those organizations that can show success in similar endeavors and interested to enhance or create a community gathering space at the station. Examples might be a low impact food service or a retail establishment. Subtenants are allowed with permission of Revitalizing Waterbury. This is an active train station with built-in traffic coming to and from the station. Tenant must understand the impact of train traffic (both passenger-Amtrak and freight) at the station. The tenant will be able to use the basement as part of the lease as storage/office space. However, access to the station basement is through the Community Room and Revitalizing Waterbury will need to be able to move between those spaces. Professional services are not a good fit, such as: law firm, bank, doctor’s office, real estate agent, though this could be a co-tenant if the primary tenant fulfills our primary goals. Tenant cannot alter the exterior of the building other than signage and alterations to the interior need to be approved by Revitalizing Waterbury in advance. There is an expectation that the historical nature of the building will be preserved. Showings will be coordinated with the listing broker and Revitalizing Waterbury.
