The City of Binghamton is looking for ideas for a historic, mixed-use property that has been sitting empty and deteriorating for years.

Proposals for the rehabilitation of 92 Park Avenue will be accepted until 4 p-m August 5.

The property on the South Side of Binghamton was built in the late 1800s and has been everything from a cobbler’s shop to a bookstore and housing.

Individuals, businesses or non-profits interested in saving the building that has become a source of blight on a heavily traveled street must complete a two-page questionnaire about how they intend to use the property, proposed timeline, cost, and plans for getting funding and moving forward with rehabilitation.
