Development Notebook: Albee Nearly Gone

July 25th, 2008 · No Comments

The demolition of the former Albee Square mall, which was once owned by developer Joe Sitt and Thor Equities, and is now slated to become a retail-office-residential complex with a massive high rise, has provided many interesting photo ops as the original structures have fallen. There’s only a small part of the former mall left now, so what’s left is a huge and empty city block awaiting development. A huge mixed use complex called Citypoint with condo tower is due to rise there including 525,000 square feet of retail, 360,000 square feet of office space and 900,000 square feet of residential space in a tower up to 60 stories tall.
