New Socha building covers many angles
July 14, 2014 By Bethany Bump Gazette Reporter
There’s hardly a right angle to be found at the new Socha building on Route 50.
The tiles in the lobby, the shape of the apartments and even the balconies have all been designed with interesting angles in mind. Ceilings feature angled, layered lines. Cabinets open to reveal everdeepening shelf space from one end to the other. Entire walls are made up of windows that offer views of the county airport to the south and leafy trees to the west.
Between the angled design, a spandrel glass facade and the diverse mix of tenants lined up for the mixed-use building, there is no other building like the new $10 million development at Socha Plaza in Glenville. C2 Design/Architecture, of Schenectady, designed the three-story, 60,000-squarefoot facility, and considers it the benchmark by which all future construction efforts in town will be judged.
