SARATOGA SPRINGS — The city’s Design Review Commission is considering a new application that calls for the development of a six-story mixed-use building on a vacant Caroline Street lot. 

The location, in between Sperry’s, and Hamlet & Ghost, is formerly the spot of a two-story commercial building constructed as a tannery in the late 1800s, which was felled in the aftermath of a Thanksgiving Day 2016 blaze that had started at a neighboring restaurant. 

Plans call for a restaurant or retail establishment on the first floor, and a total of 15 apartments on floors two through 6, with each floor measuring just over 3,000 square feet of space. 

The owner, Louis Lazzinnaro, operates the family-style Italian restaurant Nové on Route 9, which he initially opened in 1999 as Sergio’s. The property at 30 Caroline St. was acquired by the owner in June 2014.
