The Troy Artium Project Moves Another Step Closer to Development [PICS]
In a recent vote, the Troy Planning Commission gave partial approval to redevelop part of the Troy Atrium into an apartment complex while still accommodating the Troy Farmers Market both inside and outside.
David Bryce has been working on this project for many years so the five-to-zero vote is a huge step forward. But he said he has a lot more work to do.
What Does He Have Planned for the Troy Atrium Space?
The project involves building a five-story hundred eighteen-thousand-square-foot apartment complex that would sit at the end of the Troy Atrium. According to the Albany Business Review, this would be on Broadway between Third and Fouth Streets.
The apartment complex would include a rooftop terrace, and one hundred apartments, and the appearance would be that of four separate buildings. The cost for the project is upwards of twenty million dollars. The sleek building would have horizontal fiber cement panels in charcoal gray, deep red, and light gray with black-framed windows and small balconies. The design is done by Syvertsen Rigosu Architects of Clifton Park.
What About the Troy Farmers Market?
There is talk of including archways on the Broadway side of the complex that would allow for the Troy Waterfront Farmers Market to have a covering for vendors when it is held outside in the summer months. They are also trying to continue to assist the farmers market to continue to hold it inside as well.
