It seems like every week or so there's a new announcement about one of the malls in this area adding something new. There have been new stores, new restaurants but Crossgates Mall isn't stopping there and it's groundbreaking!

Crossgates will be unveiling their new dual branded hotel during a groundbreaking ceremony tomorrow morning. This apparently is the first of its kind to be branded under one roof and we won't know what that is until we see the flags tomorrow morning.

The hotel is going to be five stories tall with 192 rooms and located adjacent from Crossgates Mall but owned by the same umbrella company, Pyramid Management Group. That area is currently known as the overflow lot across from Dave & Busters. According to the press release, this is the first hotel to be built from the ground up in Guilderland for 20 years. Scheduled to open fall of 2018, this hotel is apparently bringing to "globally recognized leaders in hospitality" together under one roof.
