The Town of Colonie is the Capital Region’s largest town and a major gateway for interstate commerce in the Northeast, housing Albany International Airport and being to the immediate north of the major Interstates 87/91 interchange. Spanning 58 square miles, this suburban town sits in the middle of the cities of Albany, Saratoga, Schenectady, Troy, Cohoes and Watervliet. It is situated just minutes away from major semiconductor and life sciences R&D centers at SUNY Polytechnic Institute’s Albany Nanotech Complex, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and GE Research. The region’s premier retail destination, Wolf Road, is anchored by the 1.3 million square-foot Colonie Center.
