UTICA – A new residential property is opening soon in the old Doyle Hardware building in Utica. The motto of the project is “Old Sparks, New Life.”

The Doyle is a mixed-use building with more than 50 apartment units on the upper floors and retail space on the first floor, including a restaurant, according to The Doyle’s website. There are studio apartments, one-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom apartments for rent.

“The Doyle puts you along the major artery of art, culture and nightlife in Utica,” the building’s website reads. “In the bustling Baggs Square East, The Doyle includes a new sit-in restaurant or a walkable commute to Utica's best tavern's and eateries. Visit the Utica Children's Museum across the street or relax on a wine tour at the luxuriously renovated Utica Station.”

NEWSChannel 2 got a look inside one of the completed units on Tuesday. The developer says he’s been interested in the building since 2015, ever since the mayor showed him around some of the city-owned properties.

Project co-developer Jeff Foster of Summit Commercial Real Estate said it took him five seconds to decide that this was the building to renovate, based on the growing demand for an urban lifestyle.

“People are more interested in living their lives, being close to the things that they like to do, restaurants they want to eat at,” Foster said. “The Suburban lifestyle isn't as popular as it was once.”

They started the development process in 2015 and they’re currently taking applications for apartments. To learn more about the different types of loft apartments available for rent, click here.

Foster aims to have the apartments ready for tenants by June 1.
