ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The revitalization effort continues in downtown Albany. The city unveiled a new apartment building in the Park South neighborhood near Albany Medical Center.
Mayor Kathy Sheehan said the lot on Morris Street was once a nuisance property that was bringing down the quality of life for the entire neighborhood. Now, it’s a symbol of hope and progress.
A Westchester family bought the property in 2017 while their daughter was looking at local medical schools. They worked with the city since then to finish the project.
The five-story building sits one block away from Albany Med and offers 28 units.
