SARATOGA SPRINGS — A pair of applications under consideration by the city’s Design Review Commission call for the demolition of two South Broadway motel properties and the subsequent development of multi-family developments to be constructed in the location place.    

The property at 120 South Broadway consists of a 64-room motel that was built in 1954. The site is currently comprised of three motel buildings and a separate building that serves as a spa with an outdoor pool. The proposed project seeks the demolition of the aging structures and the development of 64 townhouse units within four buildings, to be centered by a green area designated as park space.   

The second property sits approximately one-third of a mile north of the 120 South Broadway property, just north of Lincoln Avenue. It is located at 189 South Broadway, and currently houses a 32-room motel that was built in 1972. 

Overall, this property consists of four parcels and a portion of McDonald Alley. It currently sites two motel buildings and two single-family homes. The two single-family homes to the west of the development will remain. The balance of land is proposed for re-development that will include 20 multifamily residential units in a single four-story building.   

Both the 120 South Broadway and 189 South Broadway parcels were purchased five years ago by developer Stephen Ethier, who had previously been involved in multiple Saratoga Springs projects, including work at 287-289 and 166-168 Jefferson St., and 316-318 Ballston Avenue, among others.

Applications for both projects are under consideration by the city’s Design Review Commission for an Architectural Review to determine the historic and architectural significance of the existing motel structures and possible review of demolition.
