The loan will help retain 20 jobs while creating four new jobs and allow The Rec Room to make facade and interior improvements to the 10,600 sq.-ft. facility.

The Rec Room opened in April 2015 on the corner of Tillman and Broad and has transformed a vacant warehouse on an abandoned corner in Binghampton into a popular, family friendly space that attracts video game and sports fans alike. The Rec Room has catalyzed the eastern side of Broad Avenue in addition to other businesses and projects that are slated to take root in the next couple of years. In a neighborhood where a grassroots revival has taken place in the last 5 years, The Rec Room has been a part of evoking a sense of community and place. The ICED Loan would help to increase the number of ADA stalls in their restrooms and increase visibility of the location through the creation of a mural that is visible from major corridors in the neighborhood.
