SCHENECTADY A Schenectady developer is asking the city for approval to build a five-story development that would accommodate the growing demand for downtown office space and continue redevelopment of the city’s lower Broadway corridor.

Highbridge Development wants to build the 48,000-square-foot space on a 1.2-acre vacant lot just north of its headquarters at 376 Broadway. The new building would be a bigger version of the one next door a three-story, 22,500-square-foot office building Highbridge completed in 2005.
