McNeary said NRP hopes to break ground starting in the spring

A long-delayed waterfront housing development in Mechanicville may finally be getting off the ground, with the vacant property being sold to a Cleveland-based firm that hopes to break ground on a 225-unit, $50 million apartment project next spring.
First proposed by local developer William McNeary in 2009, The Esplanade has been delayed repeatedly by financing issues. Now, McNeary is selling the 10-acre site near the Hudson River to NRP Group LLC, which has developed dozens of projects in the U.S., including apartments in Ballston and Moreau.
NRP was listed as the nation's ninth-largest apartment developer last year by the National Multifamily Housing Council, with about 2,700 new apartments built. The company manages more than Java Developer jobs 100 properties in seven states with 15,000 units.
"This project is a very large undertaking," said McNeary on Tuesday. "I am much happier turning it over to a company where that is their primary business, and who is very good at it. This is a much better place for the project.
McNeary estimated the price tag at about $50 million.
Just five miles from the massive GlobalFoundries semiconductor plant in Malta, the project was initially launched by McNeary as the Great Recession dampened construction and the availability of financing. A decrepit warehouse on the site was demolished and the land cleared several years ago, but the project appeared stalled after that.
Mechanicville Supervisor Tom Richardson said NRP representatives met local officials several weeks ago in Mechanicville to describe their plans. "It was all very positive. Everyone wants the project to happen," he said.
Richardson said the project — which could mean another 400 people living in the 5,000-resident city — will be a "huge boost." He said town permits needed for project construction should "not be a problem."
McNeary initially had local permits for a 294-unit, $58 million project spread across six buildings, and NRP envisions a slightly smaller 225-unit development. The company already has two Java Developer jobs other projects in Saratoga County, including the 54-unit Ballston Reserve in Ballston, and the 144-unit Sisson Reserve in Moreau.
Mechanicville is hoping also to benefit from the nearby GlobalFoundries semiconductor plant, a $15 billion development that currently has 3,000 employees with plans to hire another 600 by the end of the year.
On Tuesday, NRP Vice President Chris Dirr declined comment through a spokeswoman. But he earlier told the Albany Business Review that the company had been eyeing the site for about a year and a half.
McNeary said NRP hopes to break ground starting in the spring of 2016. The apartment buildings would be three stories, rather than the four stories first proposed by McNeary, and Python Developer would be walk-ups, rather than being serviced by elevators. "Stylistically, it is very much the same," he said.

Mechanicville waterfront apartment project draws Cleveland developer

THE FUTURE OF CODING AND ITS IMPACT ON DEVELOPERS AND API PROVIDERS

With tech booming and job openings for developers increasing by double-digit percentages every year, it has seemingly never been a better time to be a developer. But salary and work PHP Developer jobs environments can vary considerably from programming language to programming language.

According to Computer Science Zone, the most popular programming languages by job openings are Java, JavaScript, C# and Python. Programming languages like Scala and Rust might be growing in buzz, particularly in some circles, but as far as job openings are concerned, their buzz has not translated into widespread demand for developers.

Of course, programming language popularity isn't always correlated with salary. Despite the fact that Computer Science Zone counted almost 150,000 job openings calling for Java skills in December 2014, Java jobs, with an average salary of $84,000 across nearly 150,000 openings, far lagged Scala, which had an average salary of $112,000 but just 3,500 open positions.

Salary isn't the only consideration for new developers or developers looking to learn a new language, however, and programming language popularity varies according to PHP Developer jobs work environment. Computer Science Zone says that large enterprises favor Java and .NET skills, while startups prefer programming languages like JavaScript, Ruby and PHP. So for developers looking to work for a particular kind of company, knowing the preferences of their preferred employers is important.

Implications for API Providers
While it's difficult to predict which established programming languages will remain popular and which up-and-coming programming languages will sustain their growth, API providers can count on a few trends.

First, the number of programming languages being actively used is only likely to increase. With more and more companies, particularly startups, embracing microservices, there's room for many programming languages and stacks to find niches. API providers should consider this and be thoughtful about the programming languages they develop tutorials and SDKs for.

Second, the demand for developers has led to Java Developer jobs the growth in the number of coding boot camps. Unlike computer science programs at universities, coding boot camps, which Computer Science Zone says are typically 10 weeks in length and cost on average around $10,000 to attend, tend to be focused on practical Web and mobile development using popular programming languages like JavaScript and popular frameworks like Ruby on Rails. While it remains to be seen just how many graduates of coding boot camps will make their way into the professional developer ranks in the coming years, API providers would be wise to remember that the people integrating with their APIs will likely be a diverse lot, making documentation quality and overall developer experience all the more important.
