Just in time for the holiday shopping frenzy, Overhead Door assisted in transforming a bay of loading garages in Ithaca, New York, into an aesthetically pleasing retail space. What was previously a drab alley of loading garages is now a bustling retail space in Press Bay Alley.
This eye-catching retail space houses Boxy Bikes, which sells custom electric bikes, and Amuse: Modern Cottage Industry, which features handmade crafts and interesting local finds. The entire transformation was followed by Ithaca Builds, a site that provides information and updates about projects and development in the Ithaca area.
The transformation began with the demolition and gutting of the Press Bay Alley structure, and then the building was slowly added to piece by piece. Overhead Door supplied aluminum sectional doors, in keeping with the key design components of the remodel and vision of the designer. The Press Bay Alley project was completed as a collective effort by John Guttridge and David Kuckuck of Urban Core, LLC, John and Claudia Brenner Architects, Accufab, McPherson Builders, and RG Builders, along with others.
