The AK Carpet project is located in downtown Albany. The two-story, historic brick building contains AK Carpet’s sales on the ground floor and is looking to renovate the unused second floor into apartment units. The project will take place in several phases. The first phase was to update the exterior, replacing the existing, non-historic fabric awnings with metal and installing new windows on the second floor in openings that had been previously bricked over. The second and third phases will be to add stair access and five apartments units (two 1-bedroom, two 2-bedroom and one 3-bedroom). The interior design of the apartments are intended to retain some of the historic, industrial elements of the building, including some exposed original brick walls and wood beams.
