Putnam Block redevelopment
The Putnam Block Redevelopment will revitalize downtown Bennington with vibrant, mixed-use spaces. There will be office, residential, restaurant, retail spaces and open space areas. The location of the project is in downtown Bennington and includes the former Hotel Putnam, several adjacent historical buildings, and the former H. Greenburg & Son hardware store property.
The Ninja Path will provide a safe and comfortable walking, biking, and running route from Bennington College to Downtown Bennington, with connections to destinations in between. Phase 1 (completed) is a 12-foot wide, paved, multi-use path connecting the Bennington College entrance to Hannaford Plaza. Phase II (completed) is an interim dirt path connecting the end of the Phase I path to the Hicks Avenue Pedestrian Bridge. Phase III will be a paved path from Hannaford to Harmon Road, which will include a bridge across Furnace Brook.
