City of Albany considering housing project with historic vibes near medical training development

The site of the former Albany High/Middle School campus where a residential medical training facility is slated could be joined by a nearby housing development near Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

ALBANY — A proposal for a possible housing development in a historic district near Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital could be a reversal of back to the future into forward to the past.

One idea that has caught the attention of Ward IV Albany City Commissioner Chad Warbington is a handful of townhouses designed to look like they were built at the time of other historic structures in the area.
