Dramatically reduce your overhead costs

Cities are expensive! Office space cost per sq. ft. is crazy. City taxes are draining, parking is a hassle and fighting traffic takes time out of your day. And these inconveniences don’t even take into account the added issues of health and safety for you and your employees.

Upstate NY is a less expensive place to both live and work. And after work, the outdoors await: Hiking, bicycling, boating, golf and tennis are all close by, accessible and far less expensive. And the cost of living/housing is a fraction of what you’re used to paying in cities.

Flexible layout for multiple uses

The main building is built on 5 levels for maximum flexibility, with the ability to expand as needed. If your business doesn’t need all the space now, the building’s design offers income-producing opportunities, lending itself to use by multiple businesses. The main building could be converted into a large residence or mixed-use residence and business.
