SARATOGA SPRINGS — Applicants EC Woodlawn Vandam Property, LLC are seeking the demolition of an existing structure at 119 Woodlawn Ave.
The structure is “dilapidated, incapable of restoration, uninsurable unusable,” according to documents submitted to the city. Its demolition “would benefit the aesthetic of the neighborhood thereby increasing property values of the neighboring lots.”
The owner acquired the lot April 20, 2022. The structure is a single-family, 1,312 square foot home believed to be built about 1940, and is located just off Van Dam Street, and roughly opposite Bethel Saratoga Church.
A determination of the architectural/historic significance of that residential structure is under consideration by the Saratoga Springs Design Review Commission Board, which next meets at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28 at City Hall.
Additional applications under consideration at the DRC include: a determination of architectural/historic significance of the motel, spa structures and gazebo with a mineral spring located at 120 South Broadway – where demolition is sought, and the Architectural Review of a proposed six-story, mixed-use building development at 30 Caroline St.
