If you want industrial accents, historic architectural details or have lofty aspirations—you’ve come to the right place. Here is where an opera house built in 1881 now showcases a cooperative market and where a high-tech bicycle frame company calls a former textile plant home. Here is where a 17,000 square foot community center was transformed into a showroom, office and distribution center for a national fly fishing business.
Here is where that unique space you’ve been looking for is not so far out of reach. It’s just waiting to be claimed. In Schenectady, Saratoga, Albany and Troy, the kind of space we’re talking about usually comes at a premium. But not here. Our office / industrial / commercial land values and rents are highly competitive when compared to other regions in New York State.
|Land Values and Rents||The Region||NYS Average|
|Average Office Rent / per sq foot||$7.15||$18.70|
|Average Industrial Rent / per sq foot||$3.17||$7.25|
|Average Commercial / Industrial Land Price / per acre||$26,800||$62,000|

Located within New York’s Technology Triangle, Fulton County is a short drive to surrounding Capital Region areas (average commute time of 23 minutes) via access to four major Interstate highways: I-90, I-87, I-88 and I-81. It also has world class year-round recreational opportunities: 44 lakes including the Great Sacandaga Lake, fishing, hiking, camping, boating, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
“In 1981, Gloversville Sewing Center moved to its current location on East Pine Street in Gloversville. Since that time, we have grown to the largest store of its kind in the entire Capital District, and now have the largest inventory of sewing machines, fabrics, books, and patterns in the area. Our loyal patrons include customers from Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, and as far North as the Canadian border to the north, and northern New Jersey to the south. Our average customer travels 1 hour and 20 minutes to reach us. We came to Fulton County because of its beauty and quieter way of life.” –John and Diana Marshall, Gloversville Sewing Center, Gloversville, NY
