What is being planned?
These are not your average apartments and townhouses. A developer wants to build condos and townhouses on seventeen acres next to the Saratoga Springs Amtrak train station. Prime Construction of Cohoes will build the homes, along with a swimming pool, putting greens, outdoor pizza ovens and a dog park. The development will be built north of Route 29 according to the Albany Business Review.
What happens now?
Preliminary plans have been submitted to Saratoga Springs and they are hoping to get approval to build the forty-eight townhouses, three hundred and thirty-eight condos, and three hundred and seventy-six underground parking lots. The four-storey apartment complex will house one hundred and eighty-four one-bedroom apartments, one hundred four two-room apartments and fifty three-bedroom suites. The townhouses will be for rent or for sale.
Dean Devito, a director of Prime Construction, said this about the plan:
This is something we’ve wanted to do for a while. We want to create an apartment community with the same amenities that a Marriott would have.
