Solara Luxury Apartments Community

Solara is conveniently located in the Town of Rotterdam, just a short drive to Downtown Schenectady and only a 20-minute drive to Downtown Albany.  


The location allows easy access to I-890, I-90, and I-88 to take you quickly in any direction.  You are a short distance from entertainment, restaurants, major employers, colleges and universities. Solara is close enough for convenience and far enough to not be in the thick of it.  


We invite you to discover all the area has to offer. 

Located in the Town of Rotterdam

The area surrounding Solara is known for its vast culture, shopping, and restaurants. Our apartments are moments away from parks, bike paths, restaurants and major businesses. Entertainment options include the famous Proctor's Theatre which offers world-class Broadway shows each year and River's Casino.  There is never a lack of entertainment and recreational options.

Via Aquarium

Located less than a mile away from our apartments, the Via Aquarium is a great attraction for all, but especially for young families, it's a great treat! They have 37 different attractions featuring finned creatures from around New York State and within the world's oceans. With over 2,000 animals to appreciate and learn about, this aquarium is a great educational and fun experience right in Solara's backyard!

Rivers Casino

Rivers Casino & Resort is one of Schenectady's premier adult attractions. With some of the coolest live acts and dozens of exciting games, you won't be disappointed spending an evening or even a weekend at this resort. If you're looking for the staycation of your dreams, this is the place to be. And make sure to check out their luxurious dining options too! We've heard great reviews from their restaurants.

Proctor's Theatre

Proctor's is an enduring staple of the Schenectady downtown scene. Built in 1914 and originally a vaudeville house, Proctor's has had a long history of bringing entertainment to the Capital District. Drawing local school acts and international superstars, there's something for everyone at Proctor's. Don't miss out on this iconic theatre.

Great Flats Nature Trail

Just down the road from the Via Aquarium is the beautiful Great Flats Nature Trail. A 1.8 mile loop located off of W Campbell Rd. in Rotterdam, the nature trail offers great views of the local wildlife from spring to fall. Bring your dog and put on your running shoes for this less well-known gem in Rotterdam.
