Albany  -- Economic Development leaders are helping with talks between the Landmark Development Group and the downtown manager about plans to revitalize housing in the downtown area.

Landmark specializes in projects that help revive dormant downtowns and can rehab old buildings or build new ones to match the historic properties.    

"I think the key to growth Downtown will be housing, having people living Downtown. I think once we get that, you'll see a spur in economic development," said EDC's Director of Special Projects, Justin Strickland.  

Acquisition of property will take place over the next year. Thirty to more than 100 housing units could range from mixed income to senior housing.
