August ushers in a new chapter for the Albany Club’s distinguished history book. As our neighbours begin their impressive new development, we prepare for a host of enhancements to the club for our members!
The coming months will lay the foundation for decades of growth in our club and in our community. The entire project is vast in scope and only begins with our neighbours’ development. It will enhance how members can access and utilize the club and open a window for our own renovations. Our dedicated board, committees, and management team are working diligently together to leverage this opportunity – from the addition of a direct access underground parking garage to the possibility of a PATH connection. Inside and out, rooftop to basement, we will be infusing fresh new life into our building!
The immediate first steps are the installation of a scaffolding to support the historic facade of old Victoria Row and a covered pedestrian pathway. Once in place, they will begin the demolition of the buildings behind the facade and start the excavation for an impressive new office building.In an effort to continuously improve our commitment to members, it is critical that we share the evolving vision for our future. In the coming months, we will be adding a section to our website to clearly articulate this vision, the progress of this temporary construction, and how it will both benefit and impact our members in the long-term. Stay tuned for more updates as the project progresses.
