Pink Palace Purged; Union Ave’s Newest Neighbor

SARATOGA SPRINGS — This week, Julie and Co. Realty LLC announced the future plans of The Residences on Union Avenue, just steps away from a vibrant downtown, Congress Park and the Saratoga Race Course.

The former building at 46 Union Avenue was originally established in 1957 as Moore Hall, a Skidmore College dormitory, and was commonly referred to as the “pink palace.”

Its replacement will be a five-building residential property with on-site parking.

The floor plans will range from 1,375 to 2,416 square feet. The 1 to 3 bedroom residences, now under construction, are planned for occupancy in March 2018.

Bonacio Construction, in conjunction with Norstar Development USA, LP, is creating exterior features reminiscent of traditional Saratoga charm, while the interior will afford luxurious living and modern amenities.

“We were very excited to work with Brett Balzer of Balzer and Tuck Architecture, Mike Ingersoll of the LA Group and Julie Bonacio of Julie and Co. Realty on this project,” offered Sonny Bonacio.

“We believe we have created an authentic, historically correct project. Clearly one can see the attention we have given to respecting the adjacent properties and design of Union Avenue. This is also our first collaboration with Rick Higgins of Norstar Development, the original owners of the property.”

The Residences on Union Avenue will offer a distinct living experience with tailored design, five different residence types and unparalleled amenities priced from $689,900 to $895,500.

“We wanted to thank the land use boards of Saratoga Springs and all the volunteers on said boards; the approval process for this project included many of the neighbors, but in the end we feel very proud of the final design currently being constructed,” Bonacio said.

For more information about the property, call Julie A. Bonacio at 518-701-5080 or Jane R. Sanzen 518-526-6056, or visit
