A new addition to downtown Albany will soon get underway.

Officials hope to secure the building permit for the new Waffle House by the end of this month.

Construction will start soon after.

Wednesday the board talked about the new structure and other proposed developments for downtown.

"Maybe look at the Civic Center property along Oglethorpe possibly and possibly look at the other 100 block where the Riverfront Barbeque is located and just look at some of our opportunities there," said Aaron Blair, Downtown Manager.

Blair is hoping to maybe bring a sports park that could possibly house the skate park.
