Mazzone Hospitality will open a rooftop wedding and catering hall atop the Hedley Park Place! Founder, Angelo Mazzone of Mazzone Hospitality signed a 10-year lease this week, for the 10,000-square-foot space for the 9th floor. First Columbia will be renovating the space to meet the needs of the event space.
"We have been looking at Troy for a long time," Mazzone said Wednesday. "That end of town is coming alive."
The banquet center is part of First Columbia president and CEO Kevin Bette's $125 million vision to transform the Troy waterfront by making it a place to live, work, dine and spend the night. First Columbia and Hampstead America LLC recently opened a 132-room Courtyard by Marriott Hotel next to the Hedley Building.
"We are trying to make this a seven-day-a-week active waterfront," said Bette
The banquet center will focus heavily on hosting technology and job training events to give area businesses a place to educate their employees. During the evening, the focus will shift more toward weddings, fundraisers and corporate events. The center also will try to attract academic events to address needs of nearby schools and universities
