New apartments could soon be coming to New Scotland.

Neil Gifford of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission said that Pyramid has already suggested adding about 8 acres of land north of the butterfly preserve as part of its mitigation for the proposed apartments on Rapp Road. 

The company cannot “double dip,” he said, and claim that that proposed additional eight acres of butterfly habitat would also mitigate a higher theater. But what Pyramid could do, he said, is put in more money to support management efforts. 

Spruce Plaza would house a restaurant, a law firm, a dentist’s office, and a nail salon. 

GUILDERLAND — Stephen Cadalso was one of the residents of the ghost neighborhood in front of Crossgates Mall; he sold his home to Pyramid in December 2015. He believes Pyramid’s current plan to build a Costco in his old neighborhood is “too intense” of a use.

Beacon Meadows will be mixed-income housing in which residents are encouraged to help one another through volunteer opportunities. 

The new street would bring more houses to the area, but it would not make the area into a “through street” leading anywhere else.

Guilderland may soon get its first roundabout. The state’s Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing at Pine Bush Elementary School on Sept. 24 about installing a roundabout at Carman Road and Lydius Street. The old Nedco Pharmacy would be demolished.

Hiawatha Trails Executive Golf Course

Seven residents of Presidential Estates have sued the town’s zoning board of appeals, saying that the approval of the Hiawatha Trails senior independent-living project means they will suffer the “direct harm” of increased wait times to be able to get onto the only road out of their development, State Farm Road. 

The state says there is a “significant threat to public health or the environment” from chemicals in the soil and groundwater.
