Frontier TownAugust 9, 2017
Chazen has been working with the Open Space Institute on the proposed redevelopment of the Frontier Town property (aka Gateway to the Adirondacks) since 2016. Frontier Town was a wild west theme park that opened in the 1950s, and has been vacant since it closed in 1998. The approximately 70 structures on the 327-acre site include a restaurant, motel, gas station, steam-powered railroad road, forge replica, saw mill, grist mill, cottages, stables, concession buildings and restrooms. Chazen conducted a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, pre-demolition/pre-renovation asbestos survey, topographic survey, wetland delineation and prepared conceptual plans for the redevelopment of the site. Additionally, Chazen has been tasked with assessing the current drinking water supply and finding additional water supply locations for future site development.
