Site Conditions


Demolition work has been completed on the eastern portion of the Exit 29 site. The remaining 60,000 sq. ft. of building are prepared for redevelopment. The remainder of the area is a concrete slab bases that are prepared for redevelopment. Structures west of the Canajoharie Creek, where food production and corporate offices were located, vary in age, size and height, and have not been maintained since the operations terminated in 2010. In 2020, Montgomery County contracted with Apollo Dismantling Services, which completed the asbestos abatement and removal work for Building 17 (the former main building) and other structures on the western side of the site. This work was completed in October 2020.

Montgomery County has also reached an agreement with the State Historic and Preservation Office (SHPO) regarding the remaining structures on the western side of the side. Based upon this agreement, the County will preserve a limited number of necessary structures and incorporate historic features into the surrounding landscape.


Phase I and Phase II environmental assessments have been completed.
