Albany, N.Y. – 3tarchitects opened its design studio in downtown Troy’s historic Dauchy Building at 283 River Street this week. Previously, the firm was headquartered in Albany.
“We’re proud to be a part of the revitalization here in Troy, and are excited to open our design studio in such a historic building in the heart of Downtown,” said Scott Townsend, founder and principal of 3tarchitects. “This location gives us the opportunity to be a part of the streetscape and an active part of the community. From the City’s rich history to its creative energy and strong sense of community, 3t could not imagine a better place to continue to flourish.”
The building, built in 1842, features street level commercial spaces and apartments on the floors above. 3tarchitects will reside in space on the street level and partially in a level below grade that has access to the park and river. 3tarchitects has committed to a long term lease in their Downtown Troy space “Since we had to make a decision to move from our prior space in Downtown Albany and this opportunity arose, we knew that it was a great fit because who we are and what we do. We’re very committed to community development, historic preservation and the rejuvenation of these spaces and buildings in general,” noted Alicia Germano, the firm’s Operations and Business Development Director.
In realizing Troy’s potential, 3t has already immersed themselves into several downtown projects including the Riverfront Park’s Expansion to the north, the conversions of 621 River and 33 2nd Street as well as volunteering with neighbors to make a part of Franklin Street Alley into a pedestrian friendly urban walkway.
3tarchitects provides progressive architecture services and designs for clients in the Capital Region, the Hudson Valley, Central New York and beyond. The firm was founded in 2006.
The firm is planning a community celebration that will include an open house and opening ceremony sometime in October.
