One of the newest Stewart's Shops opened in Malta on Route 9 in Mechanicville. The old location was near the roundabouts but the place was small and not very convenient. This location is huge with a Sunoco gas station, plenty of seating inside, and food-to-go options including meatballs, macaroni and cheese, pizza, and more!
It's a done deal! Finally, the sale has gone through for the Town of Malta and the legendary Mangino's Ristorante. The prime piece of real estate on Saratoga Lake has been up for sale and the hope was that it wouldn't go to a private developer. The Mangino Family and the Town of Malta have agreed on a deal.
It will be one of the biggest projects in Saratoga County and possibly all of Upstate New York when it's completed. The six to eight-billion-dollar computer chip factory got the green light from local planning boards.
There has been a lot of talk in the town of Malta about having public access to Saratoga Lake. Many projects do not include locals being able to get to Saratoga Lake because of private property being sold. The town may be taking it into its own hands.
There are some amazing barbeque restaurants throughout the Capital Region. Here is a ranked list according to Yelp of the top pitmasters in our area. Try and look at this list without getting hungry! Each has outstanding reviews.
There are Stewart's Shops all over Upstate New York. Some of them have been renovated and others have not. There is one in Saratoga County that has been well overdue for an upgrade. It will be renovated, but it will also be in a new, bigger location.
Let construction season continue. There is a long stretch of Route 9 that will be getting a makeover which means lane closures through Malta and part of Saratoga. The New York State Department of Transportation (NYSDOT) will begin resurfacing that part of the roadway starting today.
Driving in the Capital Region most of my life, I had no problem with roundabouts or as we called them growing up, Latham Circle. You see that was the only one we had and it worked very well. Everyone seemed to know what to do and traffic flowed pretty smoothly through that area. Well, a few years ago the roundabout game changed in my opinion.
Thousands of jobs are coming to Saratoga County because there are plans to build another semi-conductor fabrication plant in Malta. GlobalFoundries announced that it will begin building the plant at its Fab 8 campus. This project will bring thousands of jobs with the construction and infrastructure of the plant.
