What Will the Old Catholic Central High School in Troy Become?
Alumni of the former Catholic Central High School are all involved with the plans for the school building and the athletic fields. They hope to convert it while keeping the integrity of the neighborhood.
There is a contract through Redburn Development Partners to purchase the former Catholic Central High School and turn them into sixty-five apartments.
Who is Purchasing the old Catholic Central High School?
Jeff Buell who graduated from Catholic Central in 1997 is the principal at Redburn Development partners. Joe Perniciaro who is a development associate at Redburn Development graduated in 2015, and Joe Mahoney is the associate broker at Pyramid Brokerage Co who represents the diocese.He graduated in 2004. They were interviewed by the Albany Business Review as they passed their old lockers.
What Does the Catholic Central High School Property Consist of?
The school is a three story nearly seventy-five thousand square foot building consisting of forty-eight classrooms. There is a two-story twenty-four thousand square foot gym and cafeteria nearby along with over five acres of athletic fields.
The sixty-five apartments would be built inside the main school building. The hope is to buy the property for $2.5 million and put in $17.5 million for renovations.
When Will This Project Begin?
The redevelopment proposal has to be reviewed by the Troy City Planning Commission. The city would then have to approve the plans after the property is purchased. Once that is done, construction would take about a year. The hope is to start by early this fall.
