Developer Armand Quadrini is willing to pay the cost of remediating the polluted site where he hopes to build a residential-and-commercial project called Foundry Village, with 140 apartments and a convenience store with fuel pumps. 

“A huge number of people have expressed interest in [finding] an alternative to development,” said Mark King, executive director of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy. “We’re trying to wrangle those interests into something we could present as an alternative.”

Until litigation against the project resolves, no progress will be made on the question of what the approved Hiawatha Trails project needs to do to meet the state fire code. 

Pyramid has agreed to convey to the Rapp Road Historical District five properties that it has bought within the district; the properties could be used, it says, to build a cultural center. The district denotes a rare intact neighborhood of homes built by African-Americans who came north from Mississippi during the Great Migration. 

We understand that Jeanne Picard Fish needs money for her care. But how is such great haste, at the cost of more money, helping her in the long run? 

“The last time I talked to my sister we agreed the vultures are just waiting to pounce,” Herman Picard said.

The property has an historic house and barn, which are to be demolished, and is also in the midst of the Helderberg Conservation Corridor.

Three grassroots groups — Save the Pine Bush, the Guilderland Coalition for Responsible Growth, and the Rapp Road Historical — are raising funds to hire experts that will help them challenge Pyramid’s plans for development.

Albany Country Club President Tom Cullinan told Guilderland’s Development Planning Committee that, while a proposed project to double the size of Weatherfield will not be age-restricted, it will be marketed to those age 50 and older.
