One Piece at a Time
There will be a new look on an old house at 2232 5th Avenue in Troy. TRIP recently purchased this four-unit, architecturally-interesting but long-neglected building. We are in the process of doing a complete rehabilitation of the building with plans for a ribbon-cutting in Spring 2011.
When finished, there will be upgraded, energy efficient units for tenants at affordable prices, a new appealing facade that will improve the street scape for neighbors as well as passersby, and another property will have been returned to the City's tax roll. It sounds simple and on the face of it, it is. The actual project, however, is a huge endeavor requiring lots of staff planning time, securing adequate financing from a variety of sources, coordinating various partners, architectural plans, contractor bids, and ... that's before rehabilitation can even begin!
