COLONIE — DeNooyer Realty Group, based on Wolf Road, wants to buy four adjacent properties on and near Sicker Road totaling 7.2 acres and use it as a car storage lot.
The four single family homes currently on the site will be demolished, according to the narrative submitted to the Planning Board, and the two commercial buildings will remain, one will be used as an office and one as a prep garage for the new vehicles stored on the site.
The lots are 2, 4 and 6 Sicker Road and 941 Albany Shaker Road. Last year, a Queensbury Company, The Fun Spot, wanted to build a 25,000-square-foot entertainment facility hosting such activities like laser tag, a Ninja obstacle course, mini bowling and other hands on entertainment/amusement activities.
That plan, which the Planning Board granted concept approval to in November, 2018, evidentially fell through.
The new plan would use about 3.3 acres of the site to store about 550 vehicles. The lot will not be paved but the plan calls for the installation of crusher run, a type of gravel.
The traffic generated, according to the narrative, would be minimal with only about five additional vehicles in the morning and afternoon peak hours for employees plus any vehicle deliveries.
If approved, the buildings will take up about 0.6 percent of the total lot, about 45.8 percent will be paved or covered with crusher run and about 53.6 will be greenspace. Nearly five acres of the total will not be disturbed.
The plan was presented during a sketch plan review and the Planning Board took no formal action. It must now get concept acceptance and then final site plan approval before work can start.
