A mixed-use development project located at the corner of Swan and State streets, 90 South Swan Street, will convert and activate vacant office space, create 61 multifamily apartment units, bring new revenue to local taxing jurisdictions, support at least 165 construction and four permanent jobs.

During construction the project is estimated to generate a $10.7 million county-wide economic impact and nearly an impact of $1.1 million annually when the project is completed.

The 44,000 sq. ft. commercial building will be converted into 41,000 sq. ft. of residential space including 61 apartment units (60 one-bedroom units and one studio unit) ranging from 450-550 sq. ft. A café is planned for 1,000 sq. ft. of commercial space.

On Thursday the City of Albany Industrial Development Agency board approved an application to provide assistance to Man Realty, LLC. in the form of New York State sales and mortgage recording tax exemptions and real property tax abatements. Over the next 12 years, the property is estimated to generate more than $430,000 additional revenue to the local taxing jurisdictions than what would be projected under the site’s current state. Upon completion of the project’s PILOT-period it is estimated to generate $325,598 annually for local taxing jurisdictions.
