ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Developing downtown Albany has been a work in progress for many years. But now city officials say this is the year for downtown to blossom.

With The Flats being at 100 percent capacity, people are living, working and enjoying themselves downtown, and in a few weeks they will be able to shop.

"We are so excited and we always knew we wanted to be downtown and give our customers that downtown shopping experience where they can walk from store to store," said Downtown Dawsyn Boutique Owner Morgan Layfield.

Downtown Dawsyn Boutique will be moving into 104 Pine Avenue and Layfield said she could not be happier.

"We are really excited where downtown is going. There's an increase in interest of business that want to come downtown," said Interim Downtown Manager Jacquelyn Teemer. 

The Downtown Dawsyn Boutique will offer a variety of modern fashion pieces for women.

Layfield said she is ready to share her passion with the people of Albany.

"There wasn't a lot of boutiques downtown so we felt like this would be the perfect time to bring a boutique to the area," said Layfield. 

Downtown officials said this business is one that will definitely stand out in downtown.

"It's bringing something different to Front and Pine that we haven't had in a very long time," said Teemer.

Downtown Dawsyn Boutique is hoping to be open by the end of June.

If you have a business and are interested in moving downtown, you are encouraged to contact the Downtown Development Authority.
