After 19 years, Ahern property to be sold
*Update* - Read the full story here.
The Troy Housing Authority is expected to soon sell 2.3 acres of land where the John J. Ahern apartments once sat to the developer of the Congress-Ferry Street Corridor project for $649,000, according to THA executive secretary Bill Meissner.
The property was closed by 1989 due to persistent crime and drug problems at the location and has sat vacant ever since. The four buildings which used to stand on the location were demolished in 2000.
There will be public discussion on the matter Friday at 11 a.m. at the Italian Community Center, located at 1450 Fifth Ave.
