Want to See What Downtown Troy May Look Like? Check Out the New Proposal
There is more revitalization of downtown Troy in the works. This will be the fifth time this type of proposal will be brought in front of the Planning Commission. The previous plans to use the old City Hall site and part of Monument Square had been denied.
Where is the Space that is Being Proposed?
The space is at 1 Monument Square where the old City Hall once stood. It is located downtown between River Street and the Hudson River. City Hall had been torn down over a decade ago. It also lies in the area of the old municipal parking garage. Crews have been removing the staircase and demolishing the parking garage.
What is in The Proposal to be Built?
It would be a multi-use building with a public plaza, and a public parking area. There will also be underground parking garaged. The park space would have connections from Riverfront Park to River Street with seating. Plus there would be a waterfront area and other amenities and storefronts according to the Times Union.
There will be a commercial space that will have a one hundred and fifty-seat restaurant along with shops and other retail space. The parking garage will hold one hundred and fifteen spaces. This will be under the six-story building that will house apartments through five floors with the bottom containing retail space.
The project will now go in front of the Planning Commission on Wednesday, March 16th at 6 pm. You can watch the meeting on YouTube live. For more information head to the Troy website by clicking HERE.
