White Pine Commerce Park

26 Sep, 2013

Located in central New York just north of Syracuse, White Pine Commerce Park is the largest publicly controlled industrial park in the region. The 339-acre site provides easy access to all East Coast markets, with rail-line service to the site and a major interstate within 2 miles. A deep-water port within 35 miles serves as a gateway to the St. Lawrence Seaway and Port of Montreal. Connectivity is not an issue at White Pine—the National Grid substation adjacent to the site can support multiple 115kV circuits, and telecom offerings include OC3 fiber and broadband service.

White Pine is south of Lake Ontario and is part of New York’s Finger Lakes region, so there’s ample fresh water—up to 8 MGD—available onsite for data-center cooling and precision manufacturing. It’s a stable, low-risk environment with a traditional 4-season climate, reducing the chance that a natural disaster will disrupt business. The region boasts a skilled, well-educated workforce. 77,000+ high school graduates over the age of 25 live within 10 miles, and one-third of the available workforce holds a bachelor’s degree or higher. Six nationally ranked colleges and universities offer onsite worker training and certification programs, as well as proven R&D and product commercialization assistance. For detailed information on incentives and the region’s pro-growth attitude and pro-business strategy, contact Linda McShane, Project Development Specialist, at 315-435-3770 or lmcshane@ongov.net.
