The land is cleared and the footings and foundations are going in for a new luxury condominium development at 116 West Ave. about a mile west of downtown Saratoga Springs.
When completed, West Condominiums will include 34 two-bedroom residences, 4,100 square feet of retail space, and amenities including a rooftop swimming pool and underground parking.
The developers are waiting for final approval of their offering plan from the Office of the Attorney General, according to Scott Varley, a licensed real estate broker with the Scott Varley Team Keller Williams Capital District, who is marketing the project. If all goes well, a model unit will be available in about a year, he said.
The units will have a base price of $400,000, which Varley describes as “luxurious and affordable.” They will have wood floors, high ceilings, granite stone countertops. “It’s going to be very lovely” he said. “Pretty tricked out.”
Apartments will be on the top three floors of the four-story building. The first floor will be reserved for commercial space. Varley said he has already heard from lawyers, insurance companies and restaurant owners who might be interested in locating at West Condominiums.
West Avenue Development Saratoga is developing the project. The company, headed by John DiScipio, is new to Saratoga but has developed similar projects in Rensselaer and North Greenbush. Architects Olsen Associates designed the project.
