Building renovation will create business incubator at Clarkson University

Damon Hall Business Incubator will be housed in a facility that has been unused for 20 years.

Clarkson University in Potsdam, N.Y., has broken ground for its new Damon Hall Business Incubator.

The university's Shipley Center for Innovation is renovating a building in downtown Potsdam into support and business incubator manufacturing space. The incubator will focus primarily on manufacturing space.

The 6,000-square-foot project, created through funding from the Northern Border Regional Commission, will remove asbestos from the building, install a fire alarm system, a heating system and lighting, and carry out infrastructure repairs.

The university says the facility renovation is an opportunity to turn an unused building, vacant for more than 20 years, into a usable, thriving space.

In future phases of its Downtown Campus Revitalization Project, Clarkson envisions a premium mixed-use space that will house additional incubator businesses, as well the option of a food storage component.
