Sixty State Place Officially Cuts Ribbons

March 5, 2014

ALBANY, N.Y. (March 4, 2014) — Sixty State Place, a new luxury event space located in the heart of Downtown Albany, opened its doors to the public after undergoing substantial renovations to the former bank.

Originally built in 1902 and designed by York and Sawyer in a Beaux-Arts neoclassical architecture style, Sixty State Place completed its restoration efforts in late 2013, turning the former National Commerce Bank and Trust building into a state-of-the-art, luxury event venue operated by Gordon Companies. The restoration maintained its historic accents to hold special events, receptions, and social gatherings.

“Sixty State Place demonstrates the incredible transformation that can occur when you pair a dedicated developer with a challenging vacant space,” said Mike Yevoli, Commissioner of Development and Planning and Capitalize Albany Corporation President. “This project should be considered a best practice of how to adaptively reuse underutilized bank space, and the Capitalize Albany Corporation and City of Albany IDA board and staff are very proud to play a part in its success.”
