Phase 1 complete for Northside Village apartments

Schenectady is celebrating the completion of phase one of the $29.3 million dollar revitalization of affordable apartments on Van Vranken Avenue.

Formerly known as Yates Village, phase one of the redevelopment of Northside Village rehabbed 25 existing apartments and built 64 brand-new ones.

Eighteen units will be set aside for those with mobility, hearing, and visual impairments.

The completion will be celebrated with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday.
