Building on the Harriman Campus to be renovated

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. - Governor Cuomo announced a building on the Harriman Campus in Albany will be renovated to accommodate state employees.

The Office of General Services (OGS) will renovate Building 5 on the Harriman Campus in Albany, starting in the fall. Up to 1,400 employees of the OGS Business Services Center will use the building.

Cuomo says this move will save taxpayers $17 million over the first ten years the renovated building will be occupied.

Cuomo stated in a press release, "We have made considerable advancements in making government more resourceful in New York, and this project on the Harriman Campus shows the progress New Yorkers can continue to expect from their state."

The seven story building was occupied by the DOT but has not been used since 2004.

It is expected to take 18 months to complete the project.  Asbestos abatement will begin in a few weeks.
