Northwestern Mutual Expanding at 1201 Troy Schenectady Road

LATHAM, N.Y. (December 14, 2015) — Regional developer First Columbia today announced that Northwestern Mutual, a Fortune 500 financial services company that offers a variety of insurance and investment solutions, is expanding at 1201 Troy Schenectady Road.

The Milwaukee, WI-based business is acquiring an additional 4,000 square feet at the 26,376-square-foot facility, which is called Riverhill Center. In 2003, Northwestern Mutual was the first business to move into the property. First Columbia redeveloped the three-building complex, which overlooks the Mohawk River, following the departure of Kaiser Permanente in 2002.

“We are expanding at 1201 to accommodate for an exceptional few years of growth,” said Alex Tronco, managing partner, Northwestern Mutual Financial Network-Latham.

“We have brought on 34 financial representatives to the Capital Region offices over the course of 2015 and require the space for them as well as their staff.”

Tronco said that the company remains in full growth mode and recently opened up a new branch in Troy, as well as acquired two new offices in the Mid-Hudson region to better serve clients. Northwestern Mutual Financial Network-Latham plans to hire additional staff in 2016, including financial representatives.

“We are delighted that Northwestern Mutual is growing and expanding its footprint at Riverhill Center,” added First Columbia Partner Deb Mikhitarian-Russell. “Northwestern Mutual’s continued success is also gratifying for our company, as it shows that once again we are able to meet the needs of our tenants by finding additional or better fitting space. Our goal isn’t to be a landlord, but rather a partner that can accommodate its tenants’ evolving growth needs.”
