The Town of Harrietstown Business Park is a very unique place. It is situated in the center of the Adirondacks, Tri-Lakes Region, 5 miles from downtown Saranac Lake, 12 miles from Lake Placid, 18 miles from Tupper Lake, and 45 miles to Lake Champlain and Plattsburgh. Burlington, VT, Albany, NY and Montreal, QC are approximately 2 hours driving time. Unlike other business parks it is not the big brick building with acres of black top parking. It is unique in its character, its natural appearance, clean air and access to a great quality of life.
The Park sits on over 100 acres of developed and natural wooded land. It has fiber optics available at the entrance to the Park. The Park has been gradually developed and has 7 designated, surveyed and approved BUILD NOW-NY sites. Part of the Park represents 32 acres that have been surveyed for seven developable lots. There are other areas that adjoin those seven sites which are in the process of being made ready for sale. While they are not yet site approved they are available. The BUILD NOW-NY sites are also a part of the START-UP NY program for economic development and is associated with North Country Community College. The entrance road is a paved road, maintained by the Town of Harrietstown. The fiber optic service is at the start of the entrance road. The Park is also served by Time Warner Cable and Verizon.
The Park currently has Bionique Testing Laboratories, a science based company employing a professional staff of 28 and the Adirondack ARC, Program Services Dept., a human resources provider providing services to those with developmental needs employing a staff of 38. Either entity may be contacted for their evaluation of business operation in the Park.
