Albany- The $14.5 million dollar Law Enforcement Center project was scheduled to open in October, but because of problems with masonry work and rain it will not open until mid-November.

"We've had some problems with that in the past and we'll continue to have some problems with that. It's been a challenging situation, that in addition to an inordinate amount of rain days. We've had 34 rain days in a project, so that slowed them down as well," says Tommy Chatmon of Albany Tomorrow, Inc..

The Law Enforcement Center is now 80% complete, and another downtown project is about 66% complete.

Ashley Chase at Riverside will begin taking applications for tenants August 24th.

40 of the 132 units in the apartment complex will be used for public housing. The rest are open to anyone. The $11 million mixed income development will include a pool, walking and biking paths, and recreation areas for children.
