How and why did you develop Mill Hollow Apartments?
Our development team could see the potential in the site and layout of the former Bavarian Chalet, although it was in disrepair. We knew that there was a rich history with many Capital Region residents having fond memories of weddings and special events in that space. One of the reasons that the Bavarian Chalet was so successful was the beautiful view of the scenic pond and Helderberg Escarpment. When Steve of Buck Construction saw the former Chalet, he realized that by reconfiguring the building, getting rid of the second floor, and changing the placement of rooms, we could create a 7,200-square foot clubhouse for our apartment community, 3-4x the size of an average apartment clubhouse. The indoor shared space gives residents a way to remain active and enjoy the beautiful views year-round.
What is special about Mill Hollow Apartments?
Mill Hollow offers luxury apartments with breathtaking views. Spacious two-bedroom homes are set against a vista of the Helderberg Mountains with balconies or patios where you can enjoy the outdoors. Nine-foot ceilings, large windows, and glass sliding doors lead to rooms filled with light. An open floor plan leads to a beautiful kitchen with granite countertops and an island or breakfast bar. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet, a ceiling fan, and a bathroom with luxurious granite counters and a double sink. An expansive clubhouse with a vaulted ceiling provides a place to relax by the fireplace, watch a movie in the theater, and exercise in the fitness room or in-ground pool, and have coffee in the large community kitchen. Get fresh air on the walking trail around the scenic pond, which will take you to the fire pit and community garden.
What do you love most about Mill Hollow?
We envision a community where a resident can wake up on a summer morning, take a walk along the trail and then garden in the community garden, and visit the gym or yoga room as they desire. As the afternoon temperatures rise, go for a dip in the pool. In the evening, the clubhouse could become a social gathering spot where residents enjoy the view of the sunset with friends then watch a movie. Before heading home, set back out for a walk around the pond and enjoy one of the community’s fire pits. In the winter, residents can stay fit using the exercise room and watch the snow fall on the mountains from the sun room.
What do you want the community to know about you?
We are grateful for the positive reception of Mill Hollow and the support of the Town of Guilderland. From the beginning, we knew this project had promise because of how beautiful the site is, with its location at the foothills of the Helderbergs. Guilderland is a great place to live and work, with a top-notch school district and a mix of offices and retail that provide opportunities for employment, entertainment, and great shopping. Few projects like this exist in the town.
