The New Development at Rensselaer is all about re-establishing
Rensselaer’s historic connection to the Hudson River.
The vision proposes a dramatic re-connection of the city fabric of
streets and blocks from Rensselaer’s downtown, and the new Rensselaer Amtrak train
station, into an authentic mixed use development, right on the edge of
the Hudson River. This connection will be achieved through the creation
of high quality public spaces: the extension of New Broadway,
Rensselaer’s main street, right to the Hudson, and the establishment of
a new waterfront town square called DeLaet's Landing.
DeLaet's Landing will be the northernmost harbor on the Hudson, and will serve as the transportation
and recreational front door to the entire Albany/Rensselaer area.
Current plans show the development will be built in phases, with the
First Phase comprising 200 +/- new residential units, 40,000 GSF of retail,
and the creation of the new harbor and pier. The First Phase will
be complete in it self, and will transform the image and character of
the site, drawing people to the riverfront for the quad-centennial of
Hudson’s famous voyage up the river. The development of the hotel,
office and mid-rise housing are each planned as a flexible development
site to follow the First Phase.
