Capital South Campus Center

CSCCThe Capital South Campus Center (CSCC) is a hub of higher education and workforce development located at 20 Warren Street.  The CSCC offers a variety of high school equivalency, college level and employment readiness certificate-bearing programs ranging from Child Development Associate to Logistics Certificate and much more.  Programming is offered in a combination of traditional classrooms, the Advanced Technology and Information Networking (ATTAIN) Computer Lab, the Culinary Arts Kitchen, and a soon–to-be completed high tech nanotechnology clean room.  Staff include education coordinators, workforce development coordinators, on-site child care providers, tutors and mentors.  The CSCC is a joint venture of owner Albany Housing Authority, facility manager Trinity Alliance of the Capital Region, and a broad coalition of partners representing higher education, workforce development and supportive services providers, and the community.  The 17,200 facility was developed using a $4.98 million grant from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development and a $250,000 cash match from the Albany Housing Authority.  An additional $750,000 was provided from NYS Homes and Community Renewal to finish the 3,300 square foot commercial kitchen that serves as home to Senior Services of Albany Meals on Wheels program and Schenectady County Community College’s Culinary Arts program.  The Campus Center is Phase 1 of a larger redevelopment plan for Lincoln Square Homes, a 4.5-acre public housing development in the City of Albany’s South End, into a mixed-use Neighborhood College with supportive land uses.  The vision for an educational campus stems from the City of Albany’s 2007 Capital South Plan:  SEGway to the Future, a comprehensive revitalization plan created by a broad cross section of community stakeholders.
