Douglas Ward, Mark Straus, and Tom Gardner
know the history of Saratoga Springs and its
Their buildings, located at 464-468 and 454
Broadway are between 100 and 150 years old,
bringing with them a historical significance that
comes with many of the buildings on Broadway
in downtown Saratoga Springs.
Straus views himself not as a landlord, but “as
the steward of the building, the caretaker. We
continually reinvest in the properties so they can
last another 100 to 150 years,” he said. “Continued
improvement is our goal.”
Solar power was the next step to take as a way
to ensure these buildings continue to endure, but
in a modern and environmentally responsible way.
It began on Nov. 23, when Apex Solar Power started
installation of a solar power system.
