It has been 15 months since the dilapidated former Weathervane Restaurant in East Greenbush was demolished. In the interim, rumors of another restaurant being built there have surfaced from time to time, but the first formal announcement of the fate of the plot does not necessarily bear that out.

A project is now before the town government calling for a phased development of the area on Columbia Turnpike (Routes 9 and 20) that would include a three-story building with first-floor commercial space,. Of course, there always is the possibility a restaurant of some sort could wind up there.

A second building containing 30 apartments also would be part of the initial construction. Other phases call for three buildings of 50 units each and a neighborhood complex.

The development, called the the Town Center Planned Development District. is being proposed by an entity known as 580 Columbia Turnpike LLC. A public information meeting has been scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at the East Greenbush Community Library, 10 Community Way.
