Want an upscale apartment in downtown Schenectady? Get in line.
Demand for residential space downtown is so high that just one year after finishing a three-story residential-office building at Broadway and Hamilton Street, a local developer is looking to do the same thing again only bigger right across the street.
Rotterdam developer John Luke Hodorowski wants to construct a four-story building at 242 Broadway that would house office space on the first floor and 39 upscale apartments on the top three floors. The project would cost $7 million and is slated to go before the City Planning Commission later this month.
