The village could soon see new quality housing opportunities with a recent proposed 250 housing unit development near the Hudson River.
Sean Ward, who is the executive assistant to Green Island Mayor Ellen McNulty-Ryan, said that this proposal is for the south end of Center Island, closer to the Green Island Bridge. Peter Luizzi & Bros. Contracting of Albany is proposing the over $50 million development project in the village on Osgood Avenue.
Center Island does already have apartments on the north end of it, but this proposal would add over two-hundred housing units between Green Island and Troy.
"They are looking to build quality housing, along with nice quality life-amenities, such as a marina, offices, restaurants and shops on the southern tip of the island," explained Ward.
A few months ago, village officials submitted an application with the state Department of Environmental Conservation to accept the proposed project into the state Brownfield Cleanup Program.
