Tribe Endorses JNR Enterprise to Build Family Entertainment Center
Akwesasne, NY - The Saint Regis Mohawk Tribal Council invited entrepreneurs to submit proposals for an adaptive re-use of the vacant IGA building located at 850 State Route 37, Akwesasne, NY. The seed for the project was community driven through an informal social media survey; Akwesasne overwhelmingly requested the need for a recreational facility. In the request for proposal (RFP), the SRMT requested interested parties submit ideas that “support the local community and SRMT’s vision and goals for economic development.” The vision of JNR Enterprises, LLC exceeded the requirements. On June 27, 2014 JNR Enterprises, LLC was endorsed by Tribal Council to build the region’s only complete indoor family entertainment facility, Velocity!.
