Albany --  One of Peter Studl's most high-profile properties that used to attract a lot of shoppers downtown is about to get new life.   The old Goodwill building will reopen soon.

Nancy Quinn is renting all four floors. She'll focus initially on bringing vendors to the first floor. It's a project she calls The Town Square.  "What it is is like a little town inside one building. Old time shops, new, used, antiques, collectibles, just about everything you can find, art pieces."  

She also wants to offer art, music, and dance classes and eventually have a restaurant in the building. Quinn says she's already got four vendors lined up with space for forty on the first floor. She hopes to be open early next year.  

For the record, Quinn says her new landlord Peter Studl has been helpful and easy to work with.
