Capitalizing on our rich history and beautiful 19th century architecture the City of Troy, is one of the Capital Region’s fastest growing areas for business and commerce. With enthusiastic financial backing from the State of New York, the City has made significant financial investments in the infrastructure of the downtown and surrounding areas. The City’s most important attributes are a robust mix of consumers, a diverse college and university population, and an educated workforce nurtured by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, a world class technological facility. The City’s downtown contains numerous office facilities available to support any influx of private sector or governmental office workers.

Private sector collaborations such as Historic Troy 2020, and the Troy Redevelopment Foundation, have been formed to bring together the talents and expertise of business leaders, local and state government, academia, the arts, and the non-profit sector to chart a course for Troy, and to infuse financial and human resource investment into the revitalization of the City.
