The view from Rensselaer

Look at Rennselaer with all the suitors. Mayor Dan Dwyer told a chamber of commerce group today that the city's port is in line for a possible $600 million project. And there's also possibly something happening on the long-planned de Laet's Landing mixed-use waterfront project -- Dwyer on the configuration of a possible hotel/condo project: "I don't know which way it's going to go, I just want a restaurant on top." (And who wouldn't?) [TU] [Biz Review]

Comments

Related to the east side of the river, AOA may want to check in with their Troy constituents. Apparently many Troy property owners were hit with major increases in their assessments and will be paying thousands of dollars more in taxes as part of that reassessment. Some real anger among those who feel they are being "punished" (my word, no one else) for their investments and commitments to Troy.

And there it is. Architectural panel. This is what the people in this project think is good enough for you, Troy. I can't wait til this project limps to the finish line in time for the upcoming elections. Then we can just go about calling the building what it really is: The Atrium 2.0
