Lauzon wins permit to rebuild old Key Bank structure

Barre, Vermont - December 24, 2010

A major piece of Barre City real estate will rise from the ashes.

The old Key Bank building on Main Street was torched by arsonists last summer.

This week-- a big development when the building's owner received the permits to rebuild the historic structure. The building is important to the city because it is a major part of the Barre's downtown. The old bank building will be turned into retail space and also contain apartments on the upper floors. The owner of the building is Barre Mayor Thom Lauzon.

"It's going to look beautiful," Lauzon said. "It's going to look better than it did. We purchased it when it was vacant. It is going to be something that Barre can be proud of."

Work will begin next month with the goal of finishing the project next fall. It will cost several hundred thousand dollars to rebuild.
