Kutsher's Resort, a shuttered icon of the heydey of the Catskills, has been sold to Veria Lifestyle, and is slated to rebuilt as a health-focussed resort. Plans call for stripping the existing towers to their skeletons and rebuilding them, as well as demolishing many of the remaining buildings on the site.
This project seems real, and is great news for the area. Casino gaming is not part of the plan, so moving ahead isn't dependent on getting one of the coveted casino licenses. There will be 265 rooms as well as a spa and holistic lifestyle center. When completed, this could be a jewel in Sullivan's crown.
