The first phase of Park Place at Wilton, a
mixed-use project at Route 9 and North Pines
Road, will be open by the end of the year, according
to the developer.
Park Place, which is being developed by The
Gordon Cos., an Albany firm that is also acting
as general contractor, will include 114 luxury
residential units and about 16,000 square feet
of commercial space.

a “very unique project.” it will be a total of
200,000 square feet, about 183,700 of which is
residential. The 114 units include both two story
townhomes and one-story flats, and range
from one to four bedrooms.
The exact use of the 16,350 square feet of
commercial space, which will face Route 9, is
still to be determined, he said.

which is great,” George said. “it ranges from
retail to medical to office.”
He declined to name the potential tenants.
The residential units have also received a
lot of interest.
“We’re in the early stages, but the amount of
calls we’ve gotten has been great,” George said.
He said the inquiries have come from people

would be on the units, but apartments in Gordon
Co.’s Park Place at Saratoga, in Saratoga
Springs, start at $1,600 a month.
That project, located at Seward and Morgan
streets behind Saratoga Hospital, will be completed
by September, he said. The 57 luxury
units are 100 percent leased, George said.
Gordon Cos. also has a 23-unit residential
project underway in Bethlehem, and renovated
an historic bank building in downtown
Albany to create 14 luxury apartments and a
venue for special events. George said projects
representing “a few hundred more units” are in
the approval process and should get underway
by early next year.
