Syracuse Bread Company building to be rehabilitated using Historic Tax Credits!

Developers Jason Evans, Matthew Rayo and Randall Hadzor plan to convert the 1912 Ward Wellington Ward-designed industrial building into a mixed-use property with residential and commercial units.

The Syracuse Bread Company factory at 200 Maple Street was designed by prolific Syracuse architect Ward Wellington Ward. Ward, who is best known for his residential designs, only designed a handful of industrial buildings. The Syracuse Bread Co. Factory building exhibits features of the transitional period in factory construction where the heavy load-bearing masonry “mill construction” of the nineteenth century began to give way to the concrete and steel daylight factory. The building was occupied by the Syracuse Bread Company until 1971, when it was purchased by the Cooper Decoration Company. It has been vacant since the early 2000s.
