They hope to build a forty-million-dollar hockey rink that would be home ice for Union College. Because of its proximity to the Landings Hotel and Rivers Casino, it would also double as an events center for other sports, competitions, and trade shows according to the Albany Business Review.

State Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara said that ten million dollars have already been secured for the new arena in the state budget. The hope is that the arena would be ready for the Union College men's and women's 2024-25 hockey season.

But There's More Planned!

There are plans to build an eighty-thousand-square-foot aquatic center. While fundraising continues for this project, Assemblyman Santabarbara said that he has secured two point five million dollars toward the center. It is estimated to cost thirty-five million dollars. The Capital Region Aquatic Center would hold swimming competitions and classes.

Rexford Llenroc Mansion Boasts 24K Gold Ceilings & Sailboat-Shaped Indoor Pool

In 1992 it is believed this mansion in Rexford cost over $32 million to build. Original owner, Albert Lawrence built it to be modeled after Cornell University's campus center. He was an alumnus of the college and Llenroc is actually Cornell spelled backward. Fast forward after three previous owners and scandals, this outdated mansion has sold for just $1.9 million. This mansion may be outdated but it is grandiose and over the top. It has a 5-floor glass elevator, 24K gold gilded ceilings, Scandanavian marble floors, along with a sailboat-shaped indoor pool. It also has a mermaid bar with see-through views of the pool and fountains. It sits on 12 acres along the Mohawk River.
