The Arsenal is adjacent to the Hudson River and I-787, located 5 minutes from Interstate 90, the New York State Thruway, the Albany International Airport, and the 9th busiest Amtrak station in the country. The site is minutes from the New York State Capitol and Legislative & Agency Buildings.
Safe & Secure
As a federally owned military garrison, the Arsenal is protected by a federal police force. There is a physical security barrier that surrounds the perimeter of the Arsenal. Along the barrier are access points controlled by the Arsenal police, which requires credentialing for any individual wishing to gain access to the site.
The Arsenal maintains a full-time fire department on site, as well as HAZMAT response units. The Arsenal has agreements with the City of Watervliet for automatic mutual aid, and the city’s police have certain jurisdictions on the site.
This high-level protection is a tremendous benefit for our tenant companies with sensitive R&D or projects that require a high level of security. This level of security is a unique characteristic, as compared to other high tech campuses.
Rail access is available directly from the site to Canadian Pacific and CSX lines.
Industrial Crane & High Bay Availability
There are a variety of overhead cranes and hoists on site, as well as a mix of buildings with high bays.
