Efforts to revitalize parts of Albany's south end continue

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Efforts to revitalize parts of Albany's south end entered phase three Thursday.

Crews broke ground on Alexander Street this morning, where construction will begin on revitalizing 56 new homes.

In addition to building the homes, construction will also get underway on a commercial laundromat for the neighborhood.

Local leaders say the initiative is not only helping the image of the community but also helping people find a place they can call their own.

"It's providing people an opportunity to have a safe home, a quality home, a place where they can raise their family and they can feel good about themselves and the life they're leading," said President of the Albany Common Council Caroline McLaughlin.

The first and second phase of the south end revitalization project began back in 2008.
