SCHENECTADY, N.Y.  Big changes are coming to downtown following Wednesday’s Planning Commission meeting, including dozens of new apartments, businesses and a permanent headquarters for the Schenectady Greenmarket.

Commissioners approved a number of projects that would alter the look of the downtown area, including plans to redevelop the historic Wedgeway Building at the corner of State Street and Erie Boulevard and a proposal to tear down the existing structure at 31 Lafayette St. to make way for a new five-story apartment complex.

Also approved were plans to restore the three-story Swift Building at 26 North Broadway, which once housed the Schenectady Beef Co. in the 1800s but has sat empty the past five years.
