Taylor Apartments Revitalization Meeting with Residents and Community

(Corner of Congress and First Streets, Troy, New York)
Troy Housing Authority, in collaboration with the Troy Local Development Corporation, has engaged Pennrose as its development partner to revitalize the Taylor Apartments. We are working to create a waterfront development plan that transforms this vital gateway into a mixed-use community with modern apartments catering to a broad range of income, commercial spaces and other public amenities.
Input from tenants and the broader community is essential to the development of our plans. Come and share your input about our preliminary plans which are to demolish each of the four nine-story towers in phases to accommodate existing tenants without relocating households off-site.
Preliminary renderings feature modern, lower-profile buildings oriented towards the river, with parking accommodations beneath. Commercial, office and community space are expected to occupy most of the first floors, with apartments above. Design intent includes street-side facades incorporating urban elements such as properly scaled storefronts, brick and other familiar materials. River-facing portions of the buildings are intended to feature courtyards, waterfront views, balconies and elevated garden spaces.
While the redevelopment project will be designed to fit around the Congress Street Bridge and associated vehicle ramps, structures will be planned in coordination with the any Congress Street Bridge redesign. A major goal of this coordinated approach is to introduce new opportunities for significantly expanded and improved public space and amenities along the riverfront.
Please come and help us plan for this exciting redevelopment of the Taylor Apartments.
