LATHAM - It's a familiar piece of ground to many Capital Region residents -- and it’s being put to a new use.
The former Michael's Banquet House in Latham is about to become a medical clinic. Albany Medical Center, Columbia Development and other officials gathered on Tuesday to explain the plans and show some artist renderings of the 30,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility.
The four-acre spot will be the new home for Albany Medical Center's Internal Medicine, Pediatrics and Sports Medicine practices. The site will also house an Albany Medical Center Emurgentcare facility and orthopedic specialists with the Bone & Joint Center.
Michael's had a rich history. It opened in 1960 and has hosted everything from wedding receptions to proms, anniversary parties, seminars, awards banquets, bar/bat mitzvahs, birthdays and other luncheons and fundraisers.
It has been owned and operated by award-winning executive Chef Rick Treacy and his family since 1998. He now runs Michael’s at Pinehaven Country Club in Guilderland.
The medical center satellite spots first began popping up in 2014.
