ALBANY – It’s been several years in the making, but it appears that construction on Quackenbush Square, the $100 million mixed-use development in downtown Albany by Syracuse-based Pioneer Cos. is in full-swing.

The project includes a 132-room Hyatt Place Hotel that will have meeting rooms, an indoor pool and fitness center and dining and bar areas.

There are 134 apartment units also planned, along with 14,000-square-feet of retail space.
