Rocket Science Corporation Plans Glenville, New York, Operations Complex
The approximately 8,200-square-foot building on Saratoga Road will also house the Capital District Gaming Studio, a video game incubator and game developer certification facility. The former Glenville Fire Station will be refurbished and serve as an incubator site to grow and support smaller studios.
"New York State has played a crucial role in the growth of the gaming industry in the Capital Region,” Rocket Science founder and CEO Brian Corrigan said. “With the addition of the new production credit, New York has the opportunity to become a truly global hub for innovation and in space."
Empire State Development is supporting the project with up to $1.269 million in performance-based Excelsior Jobs Program tax credits for the creation of 30 jobs, and a $200,000 grant for construction and renovation costs related to the development of the Capital District Gaming Studio. Funding for both projects was recommended by the Capital Regional Economic Development Council.
"We are happy to support the growth of the video game development industry in New York State,” noted ESD President, CEO and Commissioner Hope Knight. “Rocket Science Corporation and the Capital District Gaming Studio will help create jobs, revitalize an underused and highly-visible property along a main thoroughfare, and spur new investments in a dynamic and growing industry."
