Settled by Dutch colonists in the early 1600s, Albany, NY prospered and grew over the centuries. Development came quickly to this strategically positioned city on the banks of the Hudson River, and it’s no surprise it became the capital of New York State. Development continues to be an important part of life in Albany and across the Capital District, and Westlake Development general contractors team plays a strong role in the region’s ongoing expansion.


As one of Albany, New York’s leading general contractors, Westlake acts as sole supervisor, overseeing the entire process of construction from beginning to end. Driven by the details and committed to your success, our project management team delivers customized general contractor services perfectly suited to your particular project. We’ll select specialized subcontractors, seamlessly pair them with our own skilled staff, and ensure that every task is completed at or above our high standards.

Westlake’s reputation as a leading source of general contracting expertise has been well-earned over the years. Clients trust us, on a daily basis, to take the lead on the most demanding commercial, retail, industrial or institutional projects. From national pharmacies to auto parts outlets, from high-end jewelers to dollar stores, our general contractors team bring the value and efficiency you need.

Construction Management

The Westlake way is a hands-on approach to construction management. We’ll deploy exactly the right resources to meet your demands and handle each aspect of your project. The solutions we offer are “end-to-end,” meaning we’ll never leave you with gaps in service, never tell you a problem is someone else’s responsibility. We’re here to manage, so we manage it all.

Our technical resources are strong, our team is experienced and professional, and our dedication to your satisfaction is on display every day. All of this comes in handy when there are budget questions early on, when pre-construction needs arise, and when the actual construction phase gets underway.

Knowledge, support and value. Depend on receiving all of these and more when Westlake managers are on the job.


Our owner-focused design build services may be just the right project delivery for your development. Westlake’s professionals work hard to make your life easier, and to maintain clear and open communication with you throughout the process.

Single-source responsibility? That’s fine with us – our experienced team leaders are glad to be the go-to representatives you can depend on for clarity of vision and decisiveness of action. Apply that knowledgeable approach to the design build process, and you’ll discover why so many large national retailers have sought out Westlake for these services.

Together, we’ll find the development solutions to make your project a winner.

Pre-Construction Services

Before we build your building, we build your team. We also build your peace of mind, by handling every one of the endless pre-construction details, so you don’t have to.

Don’t be fooled by the word “details.” These tasks may be numerous, but they are critical. Dealing with them – in the correct way – is absolutely essential to avoid slow-downs, roadblocks or even larger obstacles later on in the process.

Estimating, site selection, environmental factors, permitting and much more. All of it relates to our vast and varied background, and all of it pays dividends for you.


Westlake truly is your single source for all things related to development and construction.

Real Estate Development

No one knows real estate better than the seasoned team at Westlake. Our background in this area shapes our current view of construction, creating a uniquely insightful viewpoint that brings great value to your projects. Commercial, industrial and retail real estate, environmental and zoning considerations, finance and tax implications, architecture, engineering… it’s all connected through our real estate expertise.

Property Management

We’ve proven our ability to manage. Westlake manages multi-million dollar budgets, projects, and construction teams, every day. So managing properties falls squarely within our wheelhouse. In addition to expertly overseeing and dealing with maintenance, renovations, rent collection, lease renewals, accounting, finance, brokerage and more, we also handle the myriad unexpected issues that crop up each day at every property. On top of all that, our most important deliverable may simply be putting your mind at ease, so you can put your attention elsewhere.
