Binghamton’s Number 5 Commons Businesses Prepare to Open

By on September 10, 2021 0

Workers are putting the finishing touches on the first companies to set up shop in the Number 5 Commons complex on the south side of Binghamton.

The development is located at the intersection of Vestal Parkway and South Washington Street.

Office tenants recently moved to the second floor of the city’s historic fire station which housed Restaurant Number 5 for more than four decades.

Peoples Security Bank and Trust plans to open its newly constructed office just east of the old fire station at 9 a.m. on Monday. The bank moves from an office on Main Street on the West Side of Binghamton. This office is permanently on Saturdays.

A Mirabito Convenience Store next to the bank is expected to start operating on September 20. The store will feature a café and a window where customers can order from a varied menu.

Developer Brett Pritchard said renovations were continuing on a nearby building on South Washington Street. This site was once home to La Tazza cafe, but it has been vacant for several years.

Pritchard said two tenants have committed to using the first floor of this building. He’s working on lining up tenants for space on the second floor.
