McKownville is a residential neighborhood in the eastern part of the Town of Guilderland, now containing about 915 single family homes, including a few rental properties mostly duplexes and converted houses with four or fewer units. Some small business and medical office properties, and several larger commercial properties are located on the south side of Western Avenue, with some residential properties still resisting complete conversion of this side to business use. The large shopping center and office development of Stuyvesant Plaza and Executive Park is found on the north side of Western Avenue west of the Fuller Road intersection. Part of the main campus of the University at Albany, SUNY occupies an area of McKownville located east of Fuller Road, and north of the residential area which extends to near the town boundary with the City of Albany. About 87% of the total area of property in McKownville is used for non-commercial purposes.
