Habitat for Humanity Capital District (HfHCD) has entered into a transformational partnership with Housing Visions, the Touhey Homeownership Foundation, 3tarchitects, ITT Technical Institute, the City of Albany and other community and academic partners to redevelop Sheridan Hollow as a mixed-income, mixed-use sustainable community. This comprehensive project will effect broad change by creating opportunities for affordable homeownership, quality rental housing, new retail and commercial investments, streetscape improvements, enhanced public safety and neighborhood revitalization. The Sheridan Hollow Village project will increase the City’s tax base, eliminate blight and promote re-investment in an important and historically significant neighborhood.
“Fox Hollow” at Burden and Cross as the project is called, consists of 14 new single-family homes located near the intersection of Burden Avenue and Cross Street with Sullivan Street. The community is named in memory of the late Seymour Fox, a well-known Troy attorney, whose estate generously provided many of the properties for this project. “Fox Hollow” is the largest building endeavor that Habitat for Humanity has ever pursued in the City of Troy.
In the summer of 2013, we completed 16 two family attached row-houses in the South End of Albany, with 10 contiguous homes on Alexander Street and three clusters of two homes on Delaware Street. These homes not only embody and reflect the architectural character of the neighborhood, they also bring modernity as the ten homes on Alexander Street are LEED silver certified.
