SARATOGA SPRINGS — Proposed plans for a new construction, mixed-use building in Saratoga Springs will house Just Cats and commercial and residential tenants.
Dr. Susan Sikule, owner of Just Cats Veterinary Clinic has submitted plans to the Saratoga Springs Planning Board for an 11,467 sq. ft. building off Route 9 and Driscoll Rd. to move her clinic to. Just Cats currently operates at 3258 U.S. 9 in Saratoga Springs and has an office in Guilderland; the Guilderland office will not be moving.
The proposed two-story building will house both the veterinary clinic, which will take up approximately 3,879 sq. ft., and three separate commercial spaces on the first floor. The second floor will have 7 high-end apartments. Dr. Sikule already owns the lot on Driscoll Rd., which is a little over 5 acres; the lot is currently vacant and listed as wetlands.
The proposal states that “This project will not cause any negative impacts on the schools but will have a positive impact for taxes. The project will not have any significant impacts on adjoining properties with respect to noise, visual, drainage, or lighting.” It also specifically mentions that an 8-inch water line will need to be installed.
Dr. Sikule started her practice in 1994 to fill a niche in the care for feline patients in the Capital Region.
“We are very excited about our Driscoll Road project and have worked hard to design a building that is not only environmentally green focused, but will be an exceptional representative of Saratoga Springs as the first project in the Gateway,” said Dr. Sikule. “Besides the anchor business of Just Cats Veterinary Clinic which is expanding their practice with the move nearby to their premier new location, additional prospective commercial tenants will be carefully curated to create a wonderful ‘community within a community’. We look forward to continuing a wonderful relationship with the City of Saratoga Springs and its people.”
The Planning Board is scheduled to meet on Jan. 27 to discuss this project. Any interested commercial or residential tenants can contact Jamie Marzuryk of Jamie Marzuryk Homes Team at C.M. Fox, 518-929-4475.
