A Hudson Valley-based company is in the process of converting the Pavilion Grand Hotel in downtown Saratoga Springs to a boutique apartment community called Perennial.
The property, at 30 Lake Avenue, previously a hotel before transitioning to extended stay residences, was purchased in December 2021 by Aker from Prime Companies.
Comprised of 48 residences, Perennial offers pet-friendly, comfortable living spaces including spacious studios, one- and two-bedroom residences and expansive penthouses. Its duplex penthouse apartments are designed for gathering, featuring open layouts with large private terraces, generous kitchens and separate wet bars.
Officials said the “Perennial” name is inspired by the year-round resident, an active participant in the community and a frequent consumer of local businesses and culture.
“Delivering this transition has been an exciting undertaking for us,” said Tina Ladd, Aker senior vice president. “The unique history of Saratoga Springs and the 19th century Pavilion Hotel, this property’s namesake, were inspiring elements to work with. It is our goal with all of our projects to engender a sense of community and encourage resident engagement.”
Aker’s vision for Perennial is to inspire its residents to “write their Saratoga Story, embrace the city’s downtown energy, stay in the know on the new and the interesting and meet friends, collaborators and creators,” a company statement said.
Perennial’s apartment interiors and common areas will receive a substantial upgrade as part of the rebranding. The existing fitness center will be expanded and refurbished with new equipment; the entry lobby will be remodeled to accommodate residential living and include a café amenity; hallways will be redesigned; and the roof-top building amenity will be redesigned to include both interior and outdoor entertaining areas.
Common area improvements are currently in progress and newly renovated apartments are now available for lease.
