The Exit 29 Redevelopment Project

A vision for the future, powered by a community redevelopment partnership.

A Community Partnership

Montgomery County, NY is working hand in hand with the Village of Canajoharie to transform the former Beech-Nut site located at scenic Exit 29 of the NYS Thruway into a productive, vibrant, walkable development. Both the County and the Village are striving toward a future where the site integrates with the existing fabric of the Village to enhance the quality of life, provide jobs, increase the tax base, and provide recreational and social benefits for the Village and the surrounding region.

We are looking for developers to work with both the County and Village to achieve common goals and be a member of a vibrant upstate New York community.

Developer Opportunities

The former Beech-Nut site offers numerous opportunities for development all backed and supported by both Montgomery County, NY and the Village of Canajoharie. Located along the historic and scenic Mohawk River, this NYS Opportunity Zone has direct access to the NYS Thruway and numerous secondary thoroughfares, the 26.9 acres of the Exit 29 site is prime real estate waiting for the right developer.

The Exit 29 site is fully visible from the NYS Thruway with a car count of over 23,000 vehicles passing daily. The site is electric and water ready and includes a high water, sewer, electric and gas infrastructure that has been maintained for future development purposes.
