Developer Kevin Vandeburgh proposes apartment on Troy’s last waterfront forest

Developer Kevin Vandenburgh is proposing a multi-family development on the Troy’s last waterfront forest, a ten acre site located in Lansingburgh, plus another 1.3 acres located in Pleasantdale. The site is of cultural and archeological significance to Indigneous peoples of New York. Vandenburgh recently gave a presentation to the Troy City Planning Commission, an appointed group of Troy citizens. Vandenburgh is seeking to rezone the area, which is currently zoned as single-family, to “Planning District.”

In this interview, Jess Bennett of Friends of the Mahicantuck discusses the project. You can sign up for alert from the group by sending a message to [email protected]
