Galesi gets OK for Mohawk Harbor townhouses

09-17-2015

SCHENECTADY — The Schenectady Planning Commission approved Galesi Group’s townhouse building for Mohawk Harbor and named a new chairman during a meeting Wednesday evening.

The Rotterdam developer returned to the commission for approval on the building a second time after downsizing from 24 to 15 units and changing the design. The commission unanimously approved the new proposal.

“Some loved it and some didn’t like it,” Galesi VP Paul Fallati said regarding the original townhouse design. “The other building was more of an industrial-looking building that mimicked what was at Mohawk Harbor at one point.”

The townhouse building will front the Mohawk River at the end of the old Alco site off Erie Boulevard by Freemans Bridge Road. The building will have 15 units with between 2,000 and 2,800 square feet per unit. All of the units will face the river with balconies.
