According to the Post-Journal, the Jamestown Planning Commission on Tuesday approved the site plan for the Jamestown Brewing Company, which will be located at 119 W. Third St in the Lillian Ney Renaissance Center.
Officials say brewing will be done in the basement, with a restaurant and bar area on the main floor. The business will also include a mezzanine and banquet area.
The state Historic Preservation Office has approved the project, which was required due to the project receiving historic tax credits to assist in funding the project.
Along with the site plan, the commission also approved the environmental assessment and historic preservation forms.
The Jamestown Brewing Company is slated to open before the grand opening of the National Comedy Center during the Lucy Comedy Fest, which starts Aug. 1.
According to the Post-Journal, the project has received both grant funding and low interest loans to help with its development. That includes:
- $830,000 in grant money through the state Downtown Revitalization Initiative;
- $475,000 state Main Street grant;
- around $200,000 in federal funding via the Community Development Block Grant program;
- $180,000 through a Jamestown Local Development Corporation loan;
- $100,000 loan from the County IDA;
- and $50,000 from the Greater Jamestown Zone Capital Corporation.
