Albany Barn, the Albany Housing Authority and the City of Albany partnered to redevelop the St. Joseph’s Academy building into 22 low-cost live/work residences for artists, and 13,500+ 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,” a name that originates from the age-old practice of barn raising, when a community united to build a barn – crucial to a family’s livelihood – for one of its households. In turn, that household would contribute to the overall vitality of the community.
The Barn project has been made possible through the efforts and contributions of Albany Barn, the Albany Housing Authority, The City of Albany and Mayor Gerald Jennings, Norstar Development, Capitalize Albany Corporation, Empire State Development, Dave Sadowsky, Architect, P.C., TAP Inc., Bishop Beaudry Construction, and Plumb Excel Group.
