Owner to Renovate ex-NYC Depot in Delaware

A former New York Central station in Delaware, Ohio, is undergoing renovation after it was sold to a private company.

Riverwest purchased the depot from CSX in 2019 and has begun to develop it into a restaurant with retail space.

The firm said it would rehabilitate the exterior of the building in accordance with its historical character.

That includes replacement of the roof with new asphalt shingles that match the existing color and dimensions of the existing shingles.

Plans also include replacement of the wood windows and doors, masonry restoration of the east roof overhang, and restoration of the wood trim on the building.

The depot is currently vacant and has seen occasional retail use, including as a flower shop.

In 2018 it was placed on the list of Ohio’s most endangered historic sites.
