The Downtown Albany Residential Open House event returns this Friday (August 12) from 4-7 pm. Eight properties will be showing residential units during the self-guided tour. Admission is free.

Here are the eight developments:

+ 83 Beaver Street (Beaver Lofts)
+ 370 Broadway
+ 374 Broadway
+ 412 Broadway
+ 733 Broadway (The Lofts at 733 Broadway),
+ 50 S Pearl Street,
+ 60 State Street (Park Place at Sixty State)
+ 20 Park Street

There's been a bit of boom in residential development in downtown Albany over the last few years, as many buildings have been converted to residential units. The Downtown Albany BID reports 340 new market-rate residential units have opened in/near the neighborhood in recent years, another 111 are set to open this fall, and 230 units are in planning.

Fork in the Road
Also this Friday downtown: The Fork in the Road food truck series will be back in Tricentennial Park (on Broadway across Kiernan Plaza/the old train station) from 5-8 pm. Five vendors are lined up for this month's event, with music from Hasty Page.

While they may not cough up the full taxes that would otherwise be due, wouldn't it be great if St. Rose, WAMC, SUNY and St. Peters hospital, chipped in *something*.?...Albany Med just agreed to $500K a year---a drop in the bucket given the value of all their property---but it is the right step forward. (Just to pre-empt the argument: the "economic impact" of these not for profits is real, but only cash pays the bills :-) Getting a free ride is not fair.
