More businesses have shown an interest in locating to downtown Albany according to Downtown manager Aaron Blair.

The Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority signed a development agreement with a private developer last month. Companies are touring the area looking for possible locations. He hopes those tours will pay off soon.

"We are very excited by all the opportunities that are coming out of this development," Blair said. "Just expect that we are working hard."

ADICA invested $300,000 dollars with Shandon Development Properties from Charlotte, North Carolina to implement a master plan. That plan includes a new hotel, restaurants, apartments and a retail businesses downtown.
