A new office building is planned for the corner of Grooms Road and Vischer Ferry Road in Clifton Park. Riverview Construction Associates of Rexford is the developer.
According to Robert Romano, a principal at Riverview, the building is in the final planning stages. It will be a two-story brick and stone building with about 20,000 square feet of office and retail space.
The style will be “kind of Saratogian,” with gabled roofs, he said. The six-acre corner lot at the busy intersection is currently vacant.
Romano hopes to start construction in April, with completion anticipated some six to eight months later. He expects to have retail tenants on the first floor and offices on the second floor.
So far, he added, there is “nothing firm” in the way of tenants.
He said the project will cost about $2 million and employ about 20 construction workers. It was designed by Forsythe Architects in Schenectady.
Riverview is a nine-year-old company based in Rexford. The construction company has done housing construction and, according to Romano, school, hospital, and firehouse construction, among other projects.
