Has the old Borders Building in Saratoga Springs been rented to Active Network (Reserve America) ?

We found several job postings on Craigslist:

"The Active Network (formerly Reserve America), is seeking energetic Reservation Agents to accept phone calls from customers throughout the United States interested in making reservations at various campgrounds.

We are conducting a paid training session starting Monday, 1/23 through and including Friday, 1/27 (9:00 -- 5:00). Entire training session must be completed to continue employment.

Please apply in person (40 South Street, Ballston Spa). Please call 583-6200 (dial 0) if you need directions. YOU MUST APPLY BEFORE MONDAY 1/16 2:00.

In mid-February, we are moving to Division Street in Saratoga where we will offer company-designated free parking a block away from our office." (my bold)

Division Street ? What location would be available to handle the amount of employees that Active Network requires ?  The old Ellsworth Ice Cream manufacturing building ?  A space at 18 Division Street condos ? Or even the Wise building. It's anyone's guess.

Parking a block away ?  The new to-be-built 400 space parking garage on Woodlawn Avenue?

The Active Network (formerly Reserve America) parent company is Ticketmaster...who is also Live Nation.  Maybe SPAC will partner up and provide a drive-thru ticket window.  !

We are afraid that Broadway and Divsion will start looking like this:
