BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - The 140-year-old Brooks House in Brattleboro, Vermont, which is being renovated after a fire damaged the building in 2011, is expected to be ready for its first tenants soon.
The building in the center of town has been undergoing a $24 million redevelopment project.
Vermont Public Radio reports Vermont Technical College and the Community College of Vermont plan to open classrooms and offices in the building in early August.
Space has been leased to a restaurant, a yogurt shop, jewelry store and others. Many of its apartments have been spoken for.
The former hotel had housed 60 residential tenants and a dozen shops when it was gutted by the fire.
