SARATOGA SPRINGS — A downtown section of Broadway may be getting taller. 

Proprietors of 453 Broadway are looking to construct a new three-story addition over the existing one-story retail Cooperstown Distillery on the west side of Broadway. 

The proposed structure, which would house 15 apartments, stands just south of Compton’s Restaurant and would combine the properties – 453 and 457 Broadway – by removing the existing legal property line. Angelo Ingrassia is reportedly the owner of both properties. 

The one-story structure at 453 Broadway was constructed in the circa-1940s, and the adjacent 457 Broadway dates back to about the 1850s, according to the Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation. 

A Social Club for Businesspersons

At the Planning Board, a Special Use permit and Site Plan approval is sought at 118 and 121-125 Woodlawn Ave. for a “private/social club.” 

The two parcels measure .14 acres and .23 acres, respectively. For more than a century, the property at 118 Woodlawn Ave. was owned by various religious operations and operated as a religious house of worship, according to documents submitted to the city. It has remained vacant since its latest purchase by EC Woodlawn Van Dam Property LLC in 2022. 

The applicant is seeking to use 118 as a private/social club for businesspersons to be operated by a not-for-profit entity, with 121-125 Woodlawn to serve as off-street parking for club members. The building at 118 is located on the corner of Woodlawn Avenue and Van Dam Street, just east of the convergence of Broadway/Route 9 and the Saratoga Hilton.
