What Will The Wedgeway Building Become?
A developer is hoping to turn the eyesore at 277 State Street in Schenectady into many things. Since the theater's auditorium was demolished years ago, and the barbershop has since moved out along with the restaurant once there, they hope to make the fifty-five thousand square-foot building into apartments on the upper floors and commercial and retail space below. The final product would be eighty apartments and fourteen thousand square feet of commercial space. The city planning commission will review the project on April 20th and the Metroplex board will review it on April 27th according to the Albany Business Review.
