ALBANY, GA (WALB) – More than just downtown buildings are vacant, millions of square feet of industrial space sit empty in Albany.

Albany-Dougherty Economic Development commission leaders say they're working hard to fill them.

And as the economy improves they're seeing more interest.

In all there's about three million square feet of industrial space available in the city. Space the EDC is actively marketing to potential tenants.

"What we're seeing now is an increase in activity, receiving more calls, giving more tours and doing more site inspections," said Bárbara Rivera Holmes, EDC Marketing Director.

Companies have expressed interest and even visited some of those vacant properties, but right now there are no deals in the works.
