Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Colonie, Albany County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct a 300,000-square foot single tenant office building on the former Starlite Theater property. The building will accommodate a financial firm that is consolidating offices and relocating to this site as its main headquarters. The building will include four floors plus a basement and will be constructed in two phases. Phase 1 requires 900 parking spaces and a total of 1,500 parking spaces are required to accommodate both Phase 1 and Phase 2. A parking deck or parking garage will hold a portion of those spaces. This project also includes the construction of a new connector road that was identified in a previous environmental study conducted by the Town or Colonie as an important traffic improvement to the area. The Town has planned for this additional connector road for many decades and the roadway will be owned by the Town.

Construction of the building, connector road, parking areas and stormwater measures will result in approximately 0.37 acres of impacts to state-regulated freshwater wetland TN-11. Approximately 8.1 acres of wetland TN-11 100-foot adjacent area impact will also result from project construction. A compensatory wetland mitigation plan that includes wetland creation, wetland enhancement, and land conservation is proposed by the applicant to offset project wetland impacts. A public one-mile walking/nature trail that crosses the Niagara Mohawk (National Grid) right-of-way is planned as part of Phase 1.
