History

Providing Premier Commercial Space in Albany Since 1979

The Rosenblum Companies is a developer and full service owner-operator of premier properties in the Capital Region totaling over a half million square feet.  For more than 35 years, Rosenblum has focused on providing better spaces and real estate services to Fortune 500 corporations, regional businesses, medical practices, government agencies, nonprofit institutions, and individual residents alike.  Founded in 1979, The Rosenblum Companies was the first to construct office space on Washington Avenue Extension in Albany, New York, ultimately completing ten new buildings, eight of which currently comprise the Corporate Plaza campus. In 1990, the company developed a unique parcel at the nexus of the region’s main transportation routes into Great Oaks, today one of the most desirable office parks in the Albany area.

The Rosenblum Companies focuses on providing healthier, more productive workplaces through ongoing investment and innovation. Rosenblum is one of only two private commercial property owners in the Capital Region to achieve ENERGY STAR certification for five or more buildings; commercial buildings that earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR are verified to perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency. Other sustainability practices the company has implemented include utilizing all-green cleaning products, porous pavement parking lots to mitigate storm water runoff, construction material and carpet tile recycling, low-impact integrated pest management (IPM), and installing electric vehicle charging stations, which are free to tenants. In 2015, Rosenblum was awarded both the Town of Guilderland Green Awardand the TOBY (“The Office Building of the Year”) Earth Award from The Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA). Rosenblum’s novel “Re-envisioning the Workplace” initiative assists companies with the creation of custom spaces that uniquely meet their particular corporate culture, workflow and staff needs.

The Rosenblum Companies achieved another first in 2014 by completing the adaptive reuse of a derelict former car dealership built in 1928 for 24 customized residences called 17 Chapel Boutique Condominiums. Downtown Albany’s first and only luxury condo building, 17 Chapel was a catalyst for the City’s urban housing renaissance, with over 200 new units following into development. 17 Chapel has received numerous accolades including a 2012 Sustainable Cities Award from the Historic Albany Foundation. In 2014, the Albany Business Review recognized 17 Chapel as one of “50 Projects That Are Reshaping Life and Business in the Capital Region.”
