Site Work Has Begun, 9W Project To Bring New Development, Streetscape Improvements

December 28, 2018

Mt. Hope Commons site work started in November, the new $10 million project at 351 Southern Boulevard is under way. This investment is expected to create 60 jobs (30 construction and 30 permanent) and provide new neighborhood amenities.

A project made possible with support from the City of Albany Industrial Development Agency, portions of this project will have direct public infrastructure benefits. A new traffic light with a left hand turn signal will be installed to create a safer intersection for traffic and pedestrians. Sidewalks will be constructed along route 9W and Mount Hope Drive along the project’s perimeter. Two CDTA bus stops will be installed, enhancing bus transit access. The renovated properties will include retail tenants such as Sonic, a 95-room hotel, and other amenities.
