Developer proposes luxury apts. for downtown Albany

January 25, 2007

Albany-  A developer has approached Albany Tomorrow and WG&L about buying the WG&L building and turning it into 50 luxury apartments for retirees.  The presentation was made to the board Thursday. The project hopes to spur more downtown living.

Development group, Flint Advisors Incorporated plans to position the independent living apartment complete with a heated pool and valet service to the 62 plus community with disposable income. 

"Now it's time to bring in residences, people who will live here 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It puts more pedestrians on the street who can then be customers for business downtown, creates more commerce, more activity," said Tommy Chatmon, WG&L Board member. 

Under the proposal WG&L would move to a new building. There's was no action from the board on the proposal which is being taken under advisement.
