On June 22, 2012 the Albany Barn will host Groundbreaking! a “culinary and visual” experience celebrating the start of construction at St. Joe’s Academy. There will be food and a photo exhibit featuring St. Joe’s Academy.
As residents know, St. Joseph’s Academy is a vacant school building located on North Swan Street.
Albany Barn, the Albany Housing Authority and the City of Albany have partnered to redevelop the St. Joseph’s Academy building into 22 low-cost live/work residences, and 12,000+ square feet of multi-tenant creative arts incubator, enterprise and program space including work and rehearsal suites, a dance studio, and digital media lab. The project is called “The Barn/Academy Lofts”.
