The former Ingersoll Mansion, after being moved twice, has been leased by Berkshire Bank as part of the Mansion Square development in Niskayuna.
The new branch, located on State Street near the intersection of Balltown Road, will include drive-through service. It is one of several other storefront that have opened during the phased development. Leah Capobianco and Tim Conley, with Cresa Albany, served as tenant representative for Berkshire Bank. Kevin Parisi, of Trinity Realty Group, represented the landlord, Highbridge Development.
The mansion was moved a second time due to the tenant's request to have the bank located in a more ideal location on the property. Previously, the mansion was planned to be incorporated into adjoining retail properties. The 300-ton building was first moved nearly two years ago.
Wal-Mart in August announced the company would open its first Neighborhood Market in the state at Mansion Square. The smaller storefront is to be 40,000 square feet, about a quarter of the size of a Wal-Mart Supercenter, and will employ about 90 people.
