Sennett Looks at Kirkland Hotel for Law Office
"I think that when you have a professional such as Mr. Sennett locating here, it shows the confidence that he has within the Kingston community."
- Kingston Mayor Jim Sottile
The Kirkland Hotel is set to have it's grand opening in early March after sitting dormant for many years. I recently had an opportunity to tour the building and it looks great! While I'm too young to remember what the building looked like before it was abandoned, if you look at the before and after pictures in Sunday's Freeman, you will see that RUPCO has made every effort to restore the building to it's original condition.
When reopened the Kirkland will have seven apartments, a restaurant and office space available. Jonathan Sennett, the 2007 Democratic nominee for D.A. is attempting to negotiate a lease for about 1,000 square feet in the Kirkland for his law practice.
The historical character of the building and it's location drew Sennett to the Kirkland. Being in the newly renovated Kirkland, which is listed in the State and National registers of historic places, is an exciting proposition. It will be great working in close proximity to the courthouse, said Sennett.
