Downtown gets a boost from businessman

August 9, 2007

Albany - One of Albany's wealthiest businessmen is jumping into downtown revitalization. Businessman Bob Brooks will partner with Peter Studl to attract investors to downtown properties.

Studl says Brooks bought into some of his properties, like the old Belk Department store building on Broad Avenue where a new roof is being put on. Studl says Brooks also played a big role in bringing a new Barbeque restaurant to downtown, and several other projects are in the works.
