HHL Architects designed the redevelopment of the Swinburne Building into a mixed-use, 70+ unit, market-rate and affordable apartment building located in Albany’s Beverwyck Neighborhood of the Central Avenue Business Improvement District. The five-story building will have a smaller four-story wing attached behind. The project is designed to comply with the City of Albany Unified Sustainable Development Ordinance (USDO), and supports a walkable neighborhood. Regan has provided 20,000 square feet of commercial space on the first two floors of the building for; Equinox, a human services agency, and for Whitney Young Health to operate a new Urgent Care and Pharmacy facility.
The new affordable and market-rate apartments will be located on the three and four floors above and behind the commercial space. The primary residential entry, office, and community space is also along Central Avenue. Parking will be concealed mostly behind the building.
