Imagining a new Troy riverfront

troy riverfront concept

A "development concept" from the presentation.

The presentation materials for the proposed redevelopment of the city hall site in Troy have been posted online. The package doesn't include a lot of specific details, but you can get a sense of the direction the consultants from Sasaki Associates are pointing toward -- a mixed use development with some sort of gateway to the riverfront.

The report also includes details about the two recommended sites for the new city hall -- the former Verizon Building (which is the temporary city hall) and the old Proctor's Theater on 4th Street.

Update Thursday night: From @TroyMayor:

City Council votes 7-2 to allow for the demolition of the old City Hall. State grant will pay for demolition
@ChateauOfADoubt The site will be redeveloped with mixed use residential and commercial space with parking and public access to river.

4th Street could definitely use the boost it would bring...whereas monument square would find something.

should be interesting how it shakes out

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
