BEACON, NY—New York State’s Empire State Development Corp. reports it has issued a Request for Proposals for the purchase or long-term lease and redevelopment of the 39-acre former Beacon Correctional Facility here.

The site was formerly a minimum-security facility and closed in the fall of 2013 as part of a statewide consolidation of correctional facilities. The Beacon property includes 21 modern construction structures totaling approximately 100,000 square feet of floor area and related infrastructure. The correctional facility did not utilize perimeter security walls or fences when operational. The campus-like setting is ideal for businesses and institutions that have a need for multiple uses on a single site, state officials say. The facility is located on one mile from Beacon’s downtown area and Main Street and within close proximity to Dia Beacon and Storm King.
