Birkett Landing Holds Grand Opening

Residents and officials alike gathered at Water Street Wine & Spirits for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres Wednesday, November 6th, before venturing over to the newly renovated upscale apartments next door. Hundreds turned out to see the tranformation along the Keuka Outlet, thanks to Birkett Landing developer Chris Iversen and local businessman Ray Spencer, owner of Water Street Wine & Spirits . Birkett Landing features 13 state-of-the-art apartments in the old Birkett Mills warehouses. Iversen maintained the 19th century structures’ history and integrity and the results were impresive.
