Ground broken on downtown mixed income community

January 30, 2004

ALBANY - Work will soon begin on a mixed income public housing development in downtown Albany.

Ashley Chase at Riverside will feature 132 garden and townhouse style apartments.  The development, behind James H. Gray Civic Center, will include a pool, walking and biking paths and recreation areas for children.

"This crown of Albany should be worn by all citizens," Ward 3 Commissioner Arthur Williams said.  "And, all citizens should be proud."

 The apartments will be managed by the Albany Housing Authority and should be finished within two years.
