ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany's Downtown Manager says there is still work to do but downtown's renaissance is moving along.

Don Buie told ADICA members Wednesday night that the 300-block of Broad Avenue is 100-percent occupied now. He expects the same along the 200-block of Jackson Street soon. There are two potential prospects for the void left at the old Custom Interiors location on Jackson.

Crews are also nearly finished gutting the old Harvest Moon building. Buie says they've received several calls from businesses interested in that property alone.

"We are firmly committed to turning our downtown into a showpiece," said Buie.

The city has 11 serious candidates who may soon sign agreements to relocate or expand downtown. By September 30th, downtown Albany's website should be up and running and will have everything from how to start a business to available properties. 

The link will be www.Ilovealbanyga.com.
