Since 2018, Gossips has been comparing the development efforts for the Kaz site here in Hudson, a.k.a. the Montgomery Street parcel, and One Monument Square in Troy. Last year on September 8, Hudson Development Corporation approved the purchase/sale agreement for the Montgomery Street parcel, and on the same day, the proposed design for the building to be constructed at One Monument Square was released.
Today, Albany Business Review reported that the Troy Planning Commission granted site plan approval for the building to be constructed at One Monument Square: "One Monument Square development approved in downtown Troy." The building is a project of Hoboken Brownstone Co. The following is quoted from the article:
The plans include 92 apartments with a total of 110 bedrooms; 19,890 square feet of commercial/retail space on the ground floor; two underground decks with 115 parking spaces; and a public plaza with seating, landscaping and views of the Hudson River.
Four distinct facades would represent the changing architectural styles of Troy's streetscape from the early 1800s to today.
Here in Hudson, the sale of the former Kaz site closed in March, but we still don't know what is being planned for the site.
