S: Luther Forest Technology Campus
FC: Presented With Appreciation To Michael Relyea, President April 26, 2011
1: The Luther Forest has a history of blending nature, innovation and technology. Over the years, the Luther Forest has been home to many energy and technology companies, including the Hermes Project Rocket Test site (circa 1945) and the Wright-Malta Corporation. Today, part of the Luther Forest has been re-developed specifically to be home to semiconductor, nanotechnology and emerging technology companies.
4: In the beginning, there was 1,414 acres of undeveloped forest and the vision of a better future for Saratoga County.
12: On June 10, 2009, GLOBALFOUNDRIES closed on the purchase of 223 acres at the Luther Forest Technology Campus. The land sale marked the culmination of many years of planning and began the construction phase of the Fab 8 project.
15: GLOBALFOUNDRIES held its official groundbreaking on July 24, 2009 at the site of Fab 8. More than 300 government, business and economic development leaders were on hand to celebrate the milestone.
20: Luther Forest Technology Campus is shovel-ready with utilities in place to offer abundant water, sewer and electricity to campus tenants. The infrastructure systems constructed in and around the campus include: a 28-mile, 30-36” water line; a new 115 KV substation and four 115 KV circuits; wastewater lines; a new 10,000’, 8” natural gas line; 5.5 miles of roadways throughout the campus and miles of new access roads and roundabouts.
