Prominent Location

As the geographic and historic heart of Bennington’s downtown, the Putnam Block is the most prominent location in the area and the perfect place for your business.

The high ceilings and large windows make for an open invitation to everyone on downtown’s busy sidewalks. In addition to daily local traffic, festivals and events will make your storefront the kind of billboard you can’t buy in Vermont.

Walkability Benefits Everyone

A vibrant, walkable neighborhood is called an “18-hour” place: a neighborhood bustling with activities in the morning, afternoon, and evening, seven days a week. This revolving influx of people feeds both retail and office uses: jobs are the engine of most downtowns, and workers tend to become the majority of customers for local business. The current tenant list provides built-in customers for your retail business.


The Putnam Block will have all the charm and history you’d expect from a landmark property in a New England town, totally renovated for comfort, efficiency, and accessibility.  The 4-acre project will include:

  • Outdoor plazas
  • High speed internet
  • Ample, convenient parking
  • Sustainable design features
  • Fully ADA compliant, with elevators
