EDC Warren CountyAeon Nexus Corporation, headquartered in Washington DC, is technology based consulting firm providing procurement/spend management services. The company needed a branch location in the northeast U.S. capable of meeting rigorous telecom and IT requirements, to service its multi-national clients and capture new business in the Northeast.

Aeon Nexus purchased the three-story building and began renovations. The renovations included finishing the upper two floors as Class A space for the company; finishing the ground floor for future retail or office space; and renovating the lower level into a unique club known as the Gryphon Room, for corporate meetings, employee gatherings, and social events and the community at large. In total, Aeon Nexus invested over $800,000 into the building which is now a showcase location in downtown Glens Falls. Aeon Nexus, incorporated historic elements of the existing structure into a state of the art design that provides enanced telecom, security and IT infrastructure.
