Marcy Nanocenter Site Development
Marcy New York
This site in Marcy, New York has been a challenging one.A suburb of Utica, New York, Mohawk Valley Edge has been trying to market it to the high-tech industry for over a decade. The issues with the site were numerous including 170’ drop from north to south, Core of Engineers approved wetlands, poor soil conditions, limited access to utilities and unwelcoming neighbors. The image above shows the preferred option for site, which we have subsequently changed. It is a single tenant bringing 2 450 nm semiconductor FAB’s to the site. This facility, as shown, would employ over 3,000people and be the first 450 nm FAB’s built in the U.S. The challenges of the facility included a stepped site, with 40’ retaining walls and an administration building that steps town the site.
The inset image, in the top right, is the final option to date with 2 smaller FAB’s, a memory facility, which is to be built for a confidential manufacturer, and a packaging plant, for a second undisclosed client. This will allow the site to be marketed to multiple tenants and is in keeping with the public / private partnership CNSE has set forth for development of industrial sites.
