I know everyone is really excited about getting a brand new shiny Costco at Crossgates Mall. Well, everyone except one hold out that doesn't want to sell his home that's right where Costco has been proposed to build.

It's like the Albany version of the movie"Up". Only there probably won't be a talking dog named Doug, or Russell or Mr. Fredrickson. However, I do see a giant number of balloons lifting the house away to Paradise Falls.....OK, maybe not.


In anticipation of building near Crossgates Mall, the management company has been buying up homes in one neighborhood. Over the last 20 years they have purchased all the homes they need to...except one.

According to an article in www.news10.com Pyramid Management has already taken into account the one lone holdout. They propose to build the Costco parking lot around that house, if approved.
